Hi All,
I would greatly appreciate your expertise on whether or not these are Chinese print blocks. I have seven of these boards with printing on both sides. Thanks Much!

These print blocks are Chinese,
The title,
壮悔堂文集 - Zhuanghai-tang wenji - Collected works of Zhuanghai-tang (Zhuang Regret Hall)
-Picture of block is one from from the Vol 4. Memorial to the Emperor - 秦議 巻四 -

The above work is an essay in 10 vols. compiled by Hou Fangyou (1618-1651), writer and poet of late Ming Dynasty, first printed in 1656.

With regards,
I.Nagy
