B541. Higo Kinko Taikan

Price: 
$425 + Shipping & Insurance

B541.   Higo Kinko Taikan by Sato, Homma, & Kashima.  1964.  Hardbound with plastic jacket and 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.

There are a few minor stains and some discoloration on the slipcase (nothing really); the book is in excellent condition.  8 pounds, 2 ounces.  Was $495; now $425.

I have a 2nd copy of this book with a bit of distress.  The slipcase (which is inscribed in bold characters by either Dr. Sato or Homma, I believe, is missing its bottom panel and corners of the book are rubbed (see the last 3 pictures labeled Distressed Copy).  This one can be had for $350.
