    JAPAN 1940s ILLUSTRATED POSTMARKS COLLECTION. an unusual collection of 1940s illustrated postmarks on 888 postal stationery cards - the 1.5s green and 2s brown equestrian statue types - written-up with place-names and catalog numbers and all housed in 23 small photo albums; this appears to be a comprehensively assembled survey of these cancels, as far as we can see all different, including Tanihama sunbathers, Yoshino warrior, Minami Senju Buddha statue, Aone, Kurisuno and Yamada skiers, Matsuyama and Tajimi ceramics, etc, etc. A trip round Japan through these delightful miniature views, this collection would be very difficult to assemble again.
