Taiwan Nichi Nichi Shinpō (May 1898 – March 1944) (台灣日日新報社 / Taiwan Daily News) was the official and most prominent newspaper in Taiwan during the colonial period from 1895-1944. It began publishing in 1898 following a merger of two older newspapers, the Taiwan Shinpō and the Taiwan Nippō. It was issued both in Japanese and Chinese as the official media outlet of the Japanese occupation, focused on legislation and cultural activities.
Very good. Backed on archival tissue for stability. A couple of expertly repaired tears and verso reinforcements.
