Japanese Woodblock Print Book
04 December 2022

I believe the book to be from circa 1870. It appears to be a story of life in Japan. It appears to be a woodblock print with hand paint. It is an "accordion" style book where all the pages are connected and open like the bellows of an accordion. There are no English markings.


8 1/4 inches x 6 1/8 inches x 1 1/2 inches thick


Great-Great Grandfather acquired the book in his travels from Japan. It has been passed down in the family with no details of how it was obtained.
