Description

Considered to be from the Edo/Meiji period around 1870. Original woodblock printed book of supernatural tales. Complete with 16 double page illustrations and text, two colours to most blocks. Each set within a black border. Spine a little worn and frayed, paper covers good, some creasing. Contents clean and tight. Script thought to be grass or cursive Japanese, needs an expert eye to assess this. A very good copy.
