These are the covers of two volumes of the Kuniyoshi illustrated Hakkenden novels, volume VI. Is that monster a cat or the hakkenden dog? I know there is a monster cat in the story, but I thought it was nearer the end. Is it possibly a spotted dog? Also, the small cut next to the picture. I know the upper character indicates it is the first part of the volume, but what does the character below mean? Thanks!
