Notes: [Dasa Pahor and Alex Johnson source] Japanese language published in Tokyo Japan; Colour lithography, 78 x 54 cm (30.7 x 21.3 inches). A detailed map in Japanese, printed in 1936, represents Ethiopia, immediately after the Italian invasion. The portraits in the lower left corner showcase the to opposite leaders Haile Selassie, the Emperor of Ethiopia, and Italian Fascist leader Benito Mussolini. On May 5th, Italian Marshal Pietro Badoglio marched with his troops into Addis Ababa and Mussolini declared Ethiopia a province of the Italian Empire. A year later, on 12 May 1936, when this map was made, the Emperor of Ethiopia Haile Selassie gave his famous anti-Fascist speech in the League of Nations.
