“Kaze to infuruenza”

As we’ve mentioned in previous posts, the Prange Collection holdings are comprehensive, covering virtually all subjects.  Books in the Social Sciences, particularly in Political Science and History, were most often censored, but scientific and technical books were not exempt.  Below, for example, is a technical book for medical professionals entitled, Kaze to infuruenza (Saburo Kojima, and Hideo Fukumi.
