"Except for the last kanji I read the title as follows"
Wow, how did I miss 皇 when I looked in the dictionary? Ah, I see - I was looking under the radical 自, not 白! Well, it's _probably_ the same character (it very clearly has two horizontal strokes inside the box, in the print, not one).
And are you sure about 歴? To me, there is a stroke on top, making the radical 广, not 厂. Also, the strokes along the bottom look like those in 芯 and not much like 歴. (Although perhaps you have some source to indicate that it is a variant of the one shown?)
And that left-most character (in the print) - it looks like it should be easy, but it's not!
