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.
Thank you for choosing Mearto.
This is a Japanese woodblock print book, an edition made probably during early to mid 20th century. These type of books are rare objects to find.
