While the general term for books written in Japan is Wahon / Wasobon, this woodblock print originates from an Ehon / E-hon (Old illustrated Japanese books.). The prints in these books are woodblock prints, similar to the separately published Japanese prints which are called Ukiyo-e (Prints of the non-eternal world.). Ehon books are often stitched in accordion folded pages. Possibly from a book with drawing examples. Age estimate: 1850.
Condition: Good, given age. Sheet trimmed from larger sheet. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. Please study scan carefully.
