Image 2 (https://lccn.loc.gov/sf95080021): While many items in the B-collection bear stamps, labels, and notations from the time they were seized from Japan and transferred to the United States, some marks are less than official. Pictured here is a bored soldier or archivist’s doodle of an outraged ostrich, drawn in the inside cover of “Jiji eigo nenkan” (https://lccn.loc.gov/sf95080021) (“Current English Yearbook”), published 1941.
