A Stamped and Tabbed Daifukucho: Old Ledger Book
early twentieth century
9 1/2" x 6 1/2" x 1", 24 cm x 16.5 cm x 2.5 cm
This is a very nice daifukucho, a hand bound, hand written book which could have originally been used for inventories, for accounting, for ledgers or as a record of loans.
This one is thick with many pages, each one filled with hand writing done in sumi or charcoal-based ink and studded with purple colored ink stamps. One of its two abraded covers show hand written kanji or Chinese characters. The accounting book is tabbed with several thick, board dividers.
A good example of a traditional daifukucho, with its original, intact cording.
