Two Thin Accounting Books: Daifukucho
early twentieth century
each book: 9 1/2" x 6 3/4" x 1/8", 24 cm x 17 cm x .5 cm
This is a pair of very nice daifukucho which is are hand written books which could have originally been used for inventories, for accounting, for ledgers or as a record of loans.
This pair is filled with many pages of hand writing done in sumi or charcoal-based ink. Each of its two abraded covers show hand written kanji or Chinese characters.
Good examples of a traditional daifukucho.
