    Hi Dean-san,

    It's a Battleship Yashima

    Japanese battleship Yashima - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Probably for educational purpose, it got the specs printed at the bottom.
    There might be few different ships printed like that.

    Regards,
    Taka

    明治卅四年十月廿八日
    Meiji sanjuyon-nen ju-gatsu nijuyoh-ka
    28 October 1901


    印刷全卅一日発行

    Insatsu zen sanjuichi-nichi kōgyō
    Printed all on 31st issued

    東京市、神田区
    Tokyo-shi, Kanda-ku
    Tokyo City, Kanda Ward

    The name of the printer and/or artist is cut off on the left margin. The bottom margin gives the ship's specifications such as Name; Type; Horsepower; Length; etc.

    I'm not 100% certain of some of my readings such as "insatsu zen" ... I think that is the 全 kanji for "all", but don't know if it is "zen", "sube~" or "mata~" pronunciation ...

    Thank you Guy-san for the translations!

    So this was printed even before the Russo-Japanese War.

    Interesting indeed.

    Regards,
