Why do you think it's a calligraphy book? I can see a japanese text, which is read from right to left and from top to bottom. The title begins with 24.
That's all I can say for the moment.

Your book is the 1st volume of 2nd part with the title

The whole work describes the distinguished temples and historical sites related to the Japanese Heian Period
