About This Item

1773 Japanese PHYSIOGNOMY Face Reading Match Making Female Sensho 2v Health Test

An interesting 18th century Edo woodblock-print of 'The Test of the People'. This book is an interesting manual in reading faces for the purpose of match making. It purports to describe how to look at a face and tell whether specifically a woman will be a good fit in character and type for a man.

This rare 1773 edition is written in the typical column handwritten format with furigana usage for easier reading with excellent black and white illustrations throughout!
