Marine Atlas from sometime between the late 1820s & late 1840s by Mori Jiang Yuan Shou (I *think* it was a 1/2 Japanese, 1/2 Chinese teaching manual). The 82 page book features a large number of hand-painted watercolour sketches of marine animals and plants.

It is hosted by the Rare Books Database at the National Diet Library in Japan.
