NEED HELP FINDING A BOOK

Hi!

I need help finding a book.

- There are no words, numbers, or writing in the book at ALL
- The pictures repeat, so I only took so many of the inside.
- The covers are gold-inlay, or at least seem like gold. I'm not sure.
- The colors and detail on the covers are beautiful, amazing really. One cover, the side I don't have, the circle in the middle of the cover was painted. Watercolors, beautiful.
- There are sheets in-between each page that is either Hemp or Rice paper, which is thin. A couple of those are missing, but only like one or two.
- It is bound by a type of rope which feels and seems like Hemp, but I can't be sure at all.

The Detail on this picture goes across the whole cover, both sides. It is beautiful work and is amazingly detailed. It shines quite a bit and is a bit worn on the edges. The inside is samurai or some warriors on horses riding into battle, they are holding swords/weapons.

Thx!

@mars90000000,
Maybe I'm not understanding your request...

If you had access to the book to take the photos of the inside, wouldn't you be the best informed as to where the book can be/was found?

Perhaps you are asking for help in determining the photographer/artist/publisher of a book you already have in your possession?

@mars90000000,
Depends on where you got that book. It could be someone's private collection by the way you describe the binding. It could be someone's photo album or painting collection. Most likely it is an oroginal.

It could be a one of a kind artist's portfolio, hand bound and hand decorated.

Go to a reputable book dealer for an appraisal or direction.
