This lurker can answer this question.What you have is a "crepe
paper" book produced by Japanese publishers at the end of the last century
into the '20s(?) of this century.It is said that the intent was to give
children a book they could not damage as easily as the conventionall
foirmat.Your fairy tales are probably by Lafcadio Hearn.
