"Three hand-made game boards on paper, with game pieces and a volvelle"
"n.p., n.d. [Japan": ca. 1840s-50s.]. "The first, approx. 8?"" square shows a printed zodiac wheel with a working volvelle in the middle, with 12 zodiac animals and characters for the 4 seasons on a blue background, and within a neat, interlocking black- ruled border; the second, approx. 7"" x 9?"" is based based on the I Ching and includes three printed sticks that when tossed produce trigrams. These trigrams are then matched to associated fortunes on a octogonal chart. The center of the chart can be folded over to provide three separate sets of fortunes, apparantly depending on weather conditions.Printed in blues and reds, with a label on back reading, ""Kaich sokuza uranai: Shunj doshi;"" the third, approx 9"" square shows a circular chart with 30 segments in red and yellow on a blue background. The center folds up to become a standing divider. On back is a label in blue and red with an image of a gourd. Accompanied by three cards with text on each side. The second and third items have slight creasing and worming, affecting some text."
