1942 MAP OF THE ASSEMBLED GREATER EAST ASIA CO-PROSPERITY SPHERE

from 18.00

The map was printed June 20, SHOWA 17 (1942)  and released on June 25th of the same year.  This map was originally for government use only and was not for sale to the public.  

During WWII, mandatory community meetings across Japan were requested
by the Government to educate the public about the benefits of the Greater East Aisia Co-Prosperity Sphere, consequentlylarge wall maps were printed for this purpose but few
survived in decent condition due to their frequency of use, exposure to the elements or destroyed as evidence.  

This rare map’s purpose was strictly for government use and no copies were made available for sale to the public.  This is a prime example of the implementation of the Greater East Aisia Co-prosperity Sphere as an instrument of propaganda.   At these meetings people were shown all of the members who made up the sphere and the resources they provided for the ultimate benefit of Japan. The map measures approximately 31" x 41" and has been expertly linen backed.
