A Fashionable Melange Of English Words (1887)

Beautiful, even with the spelling mistakes.

A Japanese woodcut by Kamekichi Tsunajima titled 'Ryūkō eigo zukushi,' or 'A Fashionable Melange of English Words.' The print shows images of animals, activities and objects each with their Japanese and English names.
