Title: Primary School Reading Book, Vol 2 (小學讀本巻之二)
Publication Year: Late 1800's
Description: This is a book designed to develop reading skills in primary school students. It lacks a specific date of publication, but likely dates to the late 1800's based on its content. This would fall into the Meiji era, a period marked by Japan's rapid modernization as it joined the world stage after centuries of near total isolation.
Condition: Fair, cover and pages are well worn and limp but all are still intact and legible.
Care Instructions: Japanese books are read right to left (instead of left to right) and are bound on the right side, contrary to those in Western languages. The pages may be double layered, and care must be taken to ensure that they do not separate when flipping through. The book must be stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and out of reach of bugs.
