Some more old Japanese books I found. They measure 4 1/2 Inches by 7 Inches. These are printed by Woodblock in the 1820s in the Bunsei era.The author is Kyokutei Bakin and the painter is Utagawa Kuniyasu. It’s title is Keisei Suikoden. There is only 12 pages per book. These are also fiction books and are part of a series.
Also, I don’t know why one of the photos keeps flipping upside down. idk. :P

The author is Ryutei Senka and the painter was Utagawa Kuniyoshi.The books (I believe) are fiction books.七つ組入れ子枕 - Nanatsugumi Ireko Makura is the title of the series. These books are both volumes/ in a series. There is only 12 pages each.
I’m sorry if the photos are not good, the lines are very fine and hard to catch all the detail. The books themselves are in quite good condition. Some very small parts I think have been eaten away by bookworms? Only the corners mainly the bottom left and bottom right have faded. I don’t know enough Japanese to translate much though.
