万国舶旗図譜 / Illustrated catalog of ensigns of the world
This is a zigzag folded book with a wooden case. Colored drawings are included. It was edited by Matsui Nantai, also known as Matsui Shin, and published in 1854. Matsui was a painter of late 1850s who left behind many ukiyoe such as Gotōchi Onagori Ichikawa Ichizō, but his details are unknown. A paper strip with some notes, written probably by the author, has been attached in the middle of the book (just like a Post-it note). In addition, there is a book with the same title in other historical collections such as the Collection of Iwase and the Collection of Seikadō.
