The book you have is part of a bigger series. You have volume 2-2 (every volume has 2 numbers). The title of the series is "Shaka hass˘ yamato bunko" (釈迦八相倭文庫), often shortened to just "Yamato bunko". Almost 60 volumes were released over the years 1845-1871.

Volume 2-2 was originally released 1845/46 and maybe you have a slightly later release of it. Compare your book to the image above.

For more information and other volumes of the series take a look at the following link:
