Speciman Collector

*Paull* said,
I have here a very nice copy of the scarce and sought after POCKET GUIDE TO CHINA which contains an 11 page mini-comic by Milton Caniff (creator of Steve Canyon and Terry and the Pirates) titled "HOW TO SPOT A JAP". Published by the U.S. Government Printing Office in 1942 for the War and Navy Departments. Only available to servicemen in the Pacific during World War II, not for civilians. Story is focused on determining the difference between Japanese and Chinese when experienced in the field of battle. Controversial and ridden with stereotypes.

75 pages total. Pages are in excellent condition. Only slight wear to top and bottom of spine. Has name of serviceman who owned this book on front cover. Overall a really nice copy, better than most copies I've seen. This book is CGC-able and other copies have been graded.
