Two Daifukucho #1: Handwritten Accounting Books

$40.00 USD

late nineteenth century
each: 12 3/4" x 4 7/8", 32.5 cm x 12.5 cm

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

This pair of daifukucho is slender and each contains a modest number of pages, 20 in all, with hand writing done in sumi or charcoal-based ink.  Its covers are of the same paper as the book. The back cover is cut, as can be seen in the accompanying detail photographs.

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