A quite unusual item has come up on the Yahoo.jp auctions.  As it appears to be a "working" reference, rather than just a text on the subject, I thought some of our members might be interested.

 

-----------------------------

Small orihon (accordion fold book) depicting various types of fire arrows or small explosive devices (gunpowder-based).

Small and dense explanatory text and images on both sides. The actual document was pasted onto a heavier paper. The size of the document, plus the heavy reinforcement of the backing, suggests this was a "working" reference document, to be carried in the sleeve or inside the kimono.

Condition: Fair - aged, stained, foxing, wear, edge damage, slight separation of the backing in some areas.

Auction ending: January 26

Nope, just making those interested aware that it's available.  Antique firearms are not my area of interest.  Antique documents are, generally speaking... as well as nihonto, of course.
