Hello there!
I have here an old tiny book with woodcuts. Can read someone the japanse text on the title/cover?
I just need the letters in japanese and the english translation.
Maybe someone can help. Thank you so much!!!

The cover says Tale of Genji, but the first page is some sort of medical manual. It says to treat XXX (I donft know the ailment) use Silver Nitrate etc.

A fake Tale of Genji.
