B735. Toso Kodogu Koza. 8 volumes by Wakayama
B735. Toso Kodogu Koza by Wakayama. 1972. 8 hardbound, slipcased volumes, 7 ½ x 10 ½”, 2,465 total pages in Japanese. Volumes cover early tsuba, the Goto School, Edo, Kyoto, other schools and provinces, and much more. The last volume discusses and illustrates technique. Must be thousands of pieces illustrated, both famous and lesser known. It would be safe to say this is the encyclopedia of fittings art. I have a digital copy of an index to the 8 volumes in English; if you buy the books remind me to send it to you.
The set in my pictures is one that I sold earlier; the set you will be buying has a few dinged slipcases but the books are in great shape. 28 pounds. Was $650, now $450.
I have a 2nd set of these books that is missing 7 of the 8 slipcases. Otherwise all is fine; the books have been read but not abused. This set can be had for $375.
