$35.00 USD

early twentieth century
13 3/4" x 5" x 1/2", 35 cm x 12.75 cm x 1.25 cm

This is a very nice, old daifukucho, a hand bound, hand written book which could have originally been used for inventories, for accounting, for ledgers or as a record of inventory.

This daifukucho is slender and contains a set of thin, bamboo tabs affixed to some of the pages. The front cover is written on with hand writing done in sumi or charcoal-based ink.  

A good-looking example of a traditional daifukucho, with its original, intact cording.
