[OCEAN LINERS] Osaka Shôsen Kaisha. UMI Vol. 8, #10. Osaka, Shôwa 13 [1938]. 48+ pp. 25.6 x 18 cm. Though OSK was later bought out by Mitsui after the war, at the time they published "THE SEA" as their monthly magazine, they had routes girdling the world. As a rival of NYK Lines, they filled its pages with travelogues, as well as images of the ships and the well-heeled passengers. This issue was published while war raged in China, but at least some of the paper is still glossy and the message, upbeat. Very good.
