Yokohama. [Shoobunkwan]. 1869.

In very good condition. Original title slip. A few pages with very minor creasing at top corners. A few stray marks. No worming. Previous (original?) owner named Kumagai has put his small seals on title page. Also has written, 'Kumagay' once on the front cover and five times on the rear cover, presumably for practice.
