B1035. Mitsumura Collection in the Nezu Museum
B1035. Mitsumura Collection in the Nezu Museum: Swords and Fittings. Softbound, 9 x 12", 198 pages in Japanese (object and artist names, and certain other information is given in English also). Mitsumura Toshimo was a businessman in Meiji period Japan. Out of love for an art and concern for a declining craft, he commissioned and purchased kodogu from the top artist of the time. He was able to amass a large and spectacular collection, much of which is today owned by the Nezu Museum. This is a very extensive catalog of the collection. 1,115 pieces, swords, fittings, koshirae, and a few sword stands are shown in color. This book is with a trusted consignor in Europe; he will ship and my usual guarantee applies. I show the one picture I have of the book; I hope to add others soon. Note: this book is not the same as B179. Pinnacle of Excellence, also by the Nezu Museum and also about the Mitsumura collection.
$70 plus $20 for shipping worldwide: $90 total.
