Shin'an Kyōiku Kuku Garuta ["New Ideas for Education: Multiplication Table Cards"]
[Japan: publisher unidentified, ca. late Meiji period (1900-1910s)?].
Two uncut kappazuri (stencil-printed) sheets of educational playing cards for school-age children. The number in the top right of each picture card is the answer to the multiplication question at the bottom of the card. The text cards and illustrations, which feature famous places, people, and games, provide mnemonic hints to players.
Two leaves, presumed complete. Light creases and a few small marks made during printing. Occasional small tears to extremities, one repaired. Each sheet measures approximately 38 x 26.8 cm
