B541. Higo Kinko Taikan
B541. Higo Kinko Taikan by Sato, Homma, & Kashima. 1964. Hardbound with slipcase, 8 ½ x 12”, 650 pages in Japanese and each of 483 illustrated items are described in English also. Predominately black & white photos (a few in color) of wonderful examples of the work of the Higo masters in both iron and kinko: tsuba, fuchi kashira, koshirae, matchlocks, and more. This is an exceptional, comprehensive, and difficult to find reference.
The slipcase has a few bumps and dings but still does a great job of holding the book. There are a couple shallow cuts on the book's spine (not serious); otherwise the book is in excellent condition. 8 pounds, 2 ounces. $425.
