The sample is selected from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey/Sloan Extension for Galactic Understanding and Exploration (SDSS/SEGUE) and our previous high-resolution spectroscopic follow-up with the Subaru Telescope. Several methods to derive stellar parameters are compared, and no significant offset in the derived parameters is found in most cases. From an abundance analysis relative to the standard EMP star G64-12, an average Li abundance for stars with [Fe/H]←3.5 is A(Li)=1.90, with a standard deviation of σ=0.10dex. This result confirms that lower Li abundances are found at lower metallicity, as suggested by previous studies, and demonstrates that the star-to-star scatter is small. The small observed scatter could be a strong constraint on Li-depletion mechanisms proposed for explaining the low Li abundance at lower metallicity. Our analysis for other elements obtained the following results: (i) a statistically significant scatter in [X/Fe] for Na, Mg, Cr, Ti, Sr, and Ba, and an apparent bimodality in [Na/Fe] with a separation of ∼0.8dex, (ii) an absence of a sharp drop in the metallicity distribution, and (iii) the existence of a CEMP-s star at [Fe/H]≃-3.6 and possibly at [Fe/H]≃-4.0, which may provide a constraint on the mixing efficiency of unevolved stars during their main-sequence phase. Description: The targets in our present study are selected from Aoki et al. 2013 (Cat. J/AJ/145/13; Paper I). We have obtained new, higher-quality spectra for eight targets with the High Dispersion Spectrograph on the Subaru Telescope. The spectral resolution is R=60000 with 2*2 CCD binning; the wavelength coverage is 4000-6000Å. We also analyze the spectra of two bright EMP main-sequence turnoff stars, G64-12 ([Fe/H]=-3.38) and LP815-43 ([Fe/H]=-2.96). The spectrum of G64-12 was taken on 2002 December 22 with R∼90000 and S/N∼650 at 6708Å (S/N∼454 at 4880Å) (Aoki et al. 2009ApJ...698.1803A). The spectrum of LP815-43, which was taken from the Subaru-Mitaka-Okayama-Kiso Archive (SMOKA; Baba et al. 2002ASPC..281..298B), was originally obtained on 2005 May 18 with R∼90000 and S/N∼260 at 6708Å (S/N∼142 at 4880Å).
