What is this panel with Chinese characters about?

Asking for a friend, who has on his office wall this wooden panel
, about 3 feet by 4 feet, divided into 18 sections each densely filled with Chinese (I assume) writing. It came from his mother's estate, he has know idea where she acquired it. There is also writing on the outside edges of the panel. It's hard to tell whether the writing was done directly on the wood, or on paper which was then pasted to the panel. Here's a shot
of one of the sections, and here's another
. Can anyone translate some of this and provide an idea of what it is all about? And any idea how old it might be?
