Domžale [Ljubljana] : “Unio Cleri” Misijonska tiskarna [Missionary Press], 1936. Series: “Unio Cleri” Miss. pro Jugoslavia, IX. Octavo (180 mm), original printed wrappers (sunned and lightly foxed), staple bound; 56 pp, 3 maps (one double-page); clean throughout, a good copy; with an inserted original mimeographed advertisement for the Missionary Press (toning and pale foxing).

A scarce guide to Japan prepared for Slovene Catholic missionaries, published by the Missionary Press in Domžele, outside Ljubljana.

The booklet contains historical and geographical surveys of Japan. Of particular interest is the double-page map which shows Japanese military expansion into Manchukuo, and possibilities open to Japanese citizens for emigration to China, South America, Southeast Asia and Micronesia. The map also denotes with “crossed arrows” the places to which Japanese are not welcome to migrate, notably Australia, Hawaii and mainland USA and Canada.

OCLC locates 8 copie, all of which are in Slovenian libraries.
