Japanese Silk Bound Book-Japanese Family Clothing Patterns Block Prints-Samurai
I am really not sure what this is exactly just a somewhat educated guess. It a beautifully bound book in all the original packaging a silk covered outer box as a dust cover and a silk bound book in original cardboard box. I think the book is a history of Samurai family clothing block prints. I think they had special pattern for each family just like a crest and this is a register of those print identifying what family they belong to. 10 1/2" x 13 1/2" Excellent mint condition.
