B643. Kano Natsuo Meihin Shu by Ikeda & Yoshida
B643. Kano Natsuo Meihin Shu by Ikeda & Yoshida. 1972. Clothbound with slipcase, 8 1/2 x 12", 249 pages in Japanese. Kano Natsuo (1828-1898) was the last important kodogu artist of the Samurai era; his work is exquisite. There is little text in this book; from front to back it is mostly photos of the art. Hundreds of pieces are illustrated in black & white with a few in color photos: tsuba, menuki, kotsuka, boxes, plaques, drawings, and more. Great stuff; great book.
The slipcase is lightly scuffed in a couple spots and one edge is separating (a corner of the spine of the slipcase). The book itself is in excellent condition. 4 pounds, 2 ounces. Was $200, now $175.
