B564. Yumei Koto Taikan by Iimura

$475 + Shipping & Insurance

B564.   Yumei Koto Taikan by Iimura.  1982.  Clothbound with plastic jacket and slipcase, 8 ½ x 12”, 840 pages in Japanese.  Hundreds and hundreds of oshigata and photos of blades from the Koto period; this is a very important and useful reference.  I have a copy on my book shelf; wouldn't be without it.  I have a digital copy of an English index to this book.  If you buy it remind me to send the index..

The picture of the book and slipcase are of the copy you will be buying; interior photos are from a different, sold earlier, copy.  The slipcase is dinged and smudged, separating at corners but still doing a fine job to protect the book.  A former owner has written on some pages, mostly small and neatly written dates for the smiths, and a few pages have highlighted lines of text.  Otherwise condition is fine.  8 pounds, 9 ounces.   $475.

I have a 2nd copy of this book in excellent condition: none of the issues with the copy above.  This one will be $525.  If you buy this title be sure to let me know which copy you want.
