The Seismological Journal of Japan Vols. 1-3 edited by John Milne, F.R.S.
[Japan] Scarce trio of the first volumes of The Seismological Journal of Japan that were a continuation of The Transactions of the Seismological Society. Interesting articles by Milne and Fusakichi Omori, who was actually in Australia when the September 1923 Great Kanto earthquake struck and observed its occurrence on equipment used in Australia. He returned soon after but died of a brain tumour just two months later. There is also a lengthy paper (92pp) by Josiah Conder in Vol. 2 titled, 'An Architect's Notes on the Great Earthquake of October 1891', which is also very interesting.
Yokohama. Printed at the office of the 'Japan Mail'. 1893-1894.
Vol. 1 - 150pp. Vol. II - 122pp. Vol. III - 106pp. Each 21.9 x 14.6cm.
Overall in good to very good condition. The covers have been professionally repaired. Foldouts are all present but some are separated at folds (easily repairable). Each with a neat collection number written on cover. Still a nice trio of a scarce publication. b33030873
