Publisher: BFA Publishing, 2007.
Large hardback, dustwrapper, illustrated, xviii + 457 pages, in Very Good condition.
The fourth volume in this magnificent series covers the story of the mails to and from Canadian, British and Indian servicemen captured in Hong Kong, the US Marines and others imprisoned in China, and civilians of many nationalities interned in Hong Kong and China. The principal concentration of Hong Kong mail was to and from the two major POW camps, Shamshuipo, and Argyle Street, and the civilian camp at Stanley. Many examples are shown with various censors and directional markings to and from these and other camps, as well as a considerable variety of inter-camp mail. In China a relatively small number of POWs were held initially in Woosung and then Kiangwan near Shanghai. Mail from and to these camps is illustrated. The civilians were held in a number of Civilian Assembly Centres in Shanghai, Yangchow and North China and mail from and to these camps is illustrated. Profusely illustrated with more than 400 illustrations, mostly in colour.

The sixth and final volume in this monumental series covers the history of the mails to and from prisoners in Japan, Korea, Manchuria and Borneo. It is subtitled “Hellships to Slavery” as few prisoners were captured in these countries but POWs were transported there from Hong Kong, Singapore, the DEI, the Philippines, as well as other points of capture. More than a hundred camps existed in Japan divided into groups and the book includes examples of the mail to and from the various groups of camps – Fukuoka, Hakodate, Osaka, Tokyo and Zentsuji. In Korea the principal camps were in Keijo and Jinsen and mail of these camps is profusely illustrated. Senior officers and other POWs were also held in a number of camps in Manchuria, the largest being at Hoten, Mukden. Mail to and from these POWs is covered in this volume. The POWs in Borneo, British, Australian and Indian were held in a number of camps but mail is only known from and to Kuching and Sandakan. Examples are illustrated. Profusely illustrated with more than 500 illustrations, mostly in colour.

Publisher: International Society for Japanese Philately, USA, 2003.
ISJP Monograph 14, paperback, illustrated, 62 pages, in Very Good condition.
This monograph chronicles the fascinating, but relatively unknown story of exchanges of Prisoners of War and civilian detainees between Japan and the Allies during World War II. These exchanges were negotiated through neutral countries, and were undertaken by chartered ships at neutral ports such as Lourenço Marques, Portuguese Mozambique, and Marmagao, Portuguese India. Through painstaking research, the author, has uncovered revealing information about the largely unrecorded details of accompanying mail included in the exchanges. He illustrates several examples as well as copies of associated mail such as letters written on board ship and mailed at ports visited after the exchange, letters mailed from the neutral exchange ports, and airmail addressed to passengers sent to ports that their ships were scheduled to visit. Illustrated in black & white.
