Please read the handwritten title of this book on the game of go (here as 井棋), being a manuscript containing handwritten records (kifu) of games, played by 18th century masters. It's about the third and fourth kanji (井棋??本). An educated guess would be welcome too.

That must be it!
Thanks a lot.
E.g. the tree radical is found in many strange places, like on top in 棋.
And this is an actual book title: 囲碁定石稽古本.

Yes I think its 囲碁稽古本.

棋 is a known variant of 碁, and while I haven't seen this particular variant of 囲, it could hardly be anything else but a unique variant of the 囲 in 囲碁. 稽古 is super stylized, but again it seems fairly obvious this would be a practice book, or lesson book for Igo.

Edit: just found this 𥟵 variation of 稽, so I think we can definitively say the title is 囲碁稽古本
