Original cover from Georg Keiper, German professor and former WWI Kriegsgefangen / POW of Kiautschou, China (Osaka and then Ninoshima camps), now working as a mining engineer with Anzan Steel Works in South Manchuria, on corner cover of the South Manchuria Railway Company. With typewritten contents accompanying sand and drill cores, sent to Yamato Hotel in Dairen. Very unusual. There is a nice biography of Professor Keiper (in German) on Tsingtau.org.
