B541. Higo Kinko Taikan
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.
