Edo Period Books

Regular price $95.00 $0.00 Unit price per
Tax included.

The dates on these old books aren't all legible - one is definitely 1828 - the others are also  late Edo period  (early - mid 19th century).  I'm not able to  translate  this old script but they are all hand written/brushed  and are possibly writing practice books.  Handmade  from handmade washi  ( most likely kozo - paper mulberry) with lovely rustic character  and  only a relatively small amount of insect damage  - except the one that you can see in the photo has had a  great chunk taken out of it!  One of the small ones has pressed ginko and maple leaves in the folds of the pages.  The two largest are approximately A4 size.
