[OCEAN LINERS] Osaka Shôsen Kaisha. UMI Vol. 7, #6. Osaka, Shôwa 12 [1937]. 36+ 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 the year before total war began in China, and the atmosphere of war seems absent. Very good.
