Raid on a temple

Kuchi-e are sheets which were printed for publishing them in Japanese novels and literary magazines. They were made around the turn of the century (1868-1912).
The translation of Kuchi-e means “mouth images”. Seen that way, they are, if you like, the precursors of the later mangas.
