The German geologist Edmund Naumann (1854-1927) wrote an article titled “Eduard Sueß. zu seinem 80. Geburtstag” published in Frankfurter Zeitung on 20 August 1911. We were the first to find the article. at the Library of the Institute of Earth Science, University of Tokyo in 2012 At that time, Eduard Sueß (1831-1931) was a renowned geologist, a Professor at Vienna University, and the author of “Das Antlitz der Erde”. Naumann respected Sueß as an esteemed geologist, but in the 1880s held different views regarding the origin of the Fossa Magna in Japan. Naumann’s tribute to Sueß on his 80th birthday signaled their reconciliation. We translated this article into Japanese.
