Period Paper is excited to offer items from a collection depicting the Russo-Japanese war of 1904-1905, which arose after Russia attempted to obtain a warm water port on the Pacific for their Navy and commercial maritime industry. Warfare primarily occurred near the Liaodong Peninsula, as well as around Mukden and Manchuria (China), Korea, and the Yellow Sea. The collection includes stunning photogravure portraits of emperors and uniformed military figures. It also includes wartime relief line-block and lithographed maps depicting various battles, routes and occupations in the relative regions. Originally, the collection was taken from The Times Magazine (now referred to as The New York Times) during its historic account of the war. History and wartime buffs commence, you will not be disappointed!
