A military story written in the Muromachi period. Beginning with the Emperor Godaigo's plan to overthrow the Kamakura Shogunate, it depicts the turbulent Nanbokuchō period up until the third Muromachi Shogunate, Yoshimitsu's reign. This text was treated as a historical book rather than a story, and during the Warring States period, it was read as a military science and law book. Many versions are written in mixed writing of literary Japanese Chinese with kanji and katakana, but this particular version is an unusual one that mixes in Hiragana. It is also rare that the old-moveable type version employs kanji with furigana. [Translated by NCC] [5//24]

The University of Oregon Libraries holds the only known collection of Japanese shrine and temple votive slips (nōsatsu) in North America.
The nōsatsu prints were collected from 1910 to around 1925 by Frederick Starr, an anthropologist from the University of Chicago, who was intrigued by the religious nature of the votive slips and the transmission of Ukiyo-e printing techniques and tropes from the Edo period to the nōsatsu of the Meiji and Taishō eras (1868–1925).
