  • The differences between Kunitomo Ikkansai's books "Kihou - Ki" and "Fuu Hou Ben Ki"

    As the Ikkansai thread is encompassing finer and finer detail, I have set this as a separate thread to illustrate the quality differences between the earlier 風砲弁記 "Fuu Hou Ben Ki" & 気砲記 "Kihou - Ki"

    Both are sourced from the Waseda University Library:

        Well this looks promising. The last shot above where the shooter is cocking the stag head says 上 (UP) on the far right, so presumably it was cocked with the gun upright...?

          上 is on both versions, maybe holding the gun with the barrel pointing up could also be a precaution against accidental discharge and maybe to ensure the next ball dropped into firing position?
