Photo Industrial Study No. 2. The Petroleum Industry
[Washington], United States Forces, Office of the Assistant Chief of Air Staff, Intelligence/ Division of Naval Intelligence, Photographic Interpretation Center, Navy Department, [c. 1944].
315x260mm, [iv], 62 pages with numerous illustrations and plates.
Plastic comb binding with quarter cloth and papered boards slightly marked; cloth a little flecked; corners bumped (one splitting); endpapers and intial leaves slightly foxed; flyleaf slightly torn; a very good copy.
'Restricted', and with the enigmatic inscribed reference 'Mipi-28504' on the front cover. Primarily intended as an aid for the photo-interpreter, both in identifying suitable targets and the level of destruction wrought on them. Objective, and with a dry humour.
