Original string bound decorative wrappers, with black lettering to front cover. Although the first half of the 20th century in Korean history is marked by the grave and painful experience of the Japanese occupation between 1910 and 1945, this period also saw the Japanese carrying out the first modern archaeological excavations of ancient Korean sites (royal tombs, temples, ceramic kilns) and preservation of their artifacts. Inaugurated in 1915, the Government General Museum was intended to gather and exhibit some of the best material found during these activities. Published between 1929 and 1943, the Museum bulletin featured some of the best pieces exhibited within its wall. This 12th volume published in 1938 reproduces in photogravure the following artifacts: - Stone daggers and arrowheads (Aeneolithic period). - Stone and bronze implements (Aeneolithic period). - Relief tiles found in Huyo (I) (Pakche Dynasty).- Relief tiles found in Huyo (II) (Pakche Dynasty). - Relief tiles found in Huyo (III) (Pakche Dynasty).- Relief tiles found in Huyo (IV) (Pakche Dynasty). - Gold and bronze earrings (Period of the Three Kingdoms).- Gilt bronze statuette of Maistreya (Old Silla Dynasty). - Gilt bronze statuette of Bodhisattva (Pakche Dynasty).- Stone statue of Buddha (Pakche Dynasty).- Gilt bronze statuette of Buddha (Silla Dynasty).- A vase of "Seizi" celadon ware (Koryo Dynasty).
