Kanji Abbreviations Variants and Equivalents

£28.00

Product description

This is a fascinating booklet. It was produced in the immediate aftermath of WWII by Advanced Traveller Information Service (ATIS) for the American military in 1945. As the foreword states "This publication is necessitated by the increasing frequency with which abbreviations, variants and equivalents of standard characters as use by the Japanese are encountered in captured documents". It consists of columns of Japanese ideograms. There is also a large fold out chart of characters at the end of the book. No English annotation.
ATIS publication in hardback. No DJ. Red cloth covers with a little external wear of the outside of the front hinge and moderate wear of the board edges. Good binding. This copy has been in the possession of the Acupuncture Research Centre and bears the stamp of that organisation on the front and rear covers and on the title page. There are also two somewhat smaller stamps on the early pages.
A piece of military intelligence history.
