A number of years ago, the booklet was personally discussed with Matthi Forrer, a world-famous Hokusai specialist. According to Forrer, it is an original print from around 1860. The colour of the cover is not noted in his book, many colour varieties of the cover are known, from dark brown, black to light blue. Forrer's opinion is that this yellow cover was originally printed like this at the time, he had not encountered it before. He took photos of this booklet for his archive, it appears to be quite remarkable.
