Naturally, there is no ISBN. Oddly, there is no clear publisher or copyright date identified- the closest I can find is that it says publishing house kyoto on the back (in Japanese), so I dont know if that is a general note, or if the publisher is called Publishing House Kyoto. The cover and back are paperback, and the binding consists of two tied tan ribbons. The front cover states Hiroshima in red letters, with a dull yellow background and a central black-and-white picture of the Hiroshima cityscape taken a few days after the blast.

The full title Hiroshima Under Atomic Bomb Attack and the authors name appear on the title page. The back cover is the same dull yellow color.The original owner of this particular book was an American G.I. stationed in Japan from 1960-62. This book is a sort of souvenier of the museum of the Hiroshima blast site. The first half is in English, the second half repeated in Japanese. The first few pages consist of tables listing numbers of casualties, divided up into blast zones (distance from ground zero) and similar statistics.

The following text contains a very clinical description of the human and material destruction resulting from the atomic bomb blast of August 1945 in Hiroshima. Some of the pictures of human injury are quite graphic, but the text (both English and Japanese) are notably apolitical and nonmoralizing.The book is most interesting for the very raw presentation of this subject.

I was at the same museum in 2003, and the souvenier books for sale at that time, while still straightforward about this subject, are comparatively sanatized (e.g. do not contain photos of people with their skin falling off their bodies, etc).
