B261. Robert Haynes Auction Catalog #2
B261. Robert Haynes Auction Catalog #2. 1982. Softbound, 11 x 9 ¼”, about 70 pages in English, with prices realized. Robert Haynes presided over 10 auctions of Nihonto and other Japanese art; the majority of the items were fittings. Unlike other sales catalogs which are just sales of items, Mr. Haynes, the foremost authority on kodogu in the West and possibly on earth, took the front of each catalog to educate his clients. The front of this catalog is a study of Hoju, Shitogi, Aoi, Nerikawa, and Sakanoue Tamuramaro tsuba. 473 lots, illustrated and well described, mostly fittings, fill the catalog, and there is a section of woodblock prints at the back with a few paragraphs of introduction.
Condition is excellent. 14 ounces. Now $40.
