I would be grateful if anybody can identify this old Japanese book, most probably of the Edo period.

Colophon reads,
On an Auspicious Day of the Yayoi (March) Month of the 4th Year of Shōtoku Era Wood-Horse (1714)
行町通下長者町上ル町 - Arukimachi-dōri,Shimochōja-machi. Agaru-machi (Addresse in Kyoto)
谷口七□信門 - Tanikuchi Nana□ Nobukado (Name of Editor)
洛陽書林 - Rakuyō Shorin (Publisher Kyōto)

The text in front of colophon says that this book was ordered with cloth cover and chapter & section indications, furthermore, cannot be opened fully to both sides.

With regards,

Many thanks, I.Nagy, for your kind help. Forgive my ignorance, I did not attached the scan of the title/first page. I suppose the rest of information should be on the attached photo. Is it possible to understand what is the title and who is the author of this book? | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
