B994. The Ishiguro School of Japanese Sword Fittings Artists
B994. Kacho Kenran: Toso Ishiguro Ha no Sekai The Ishiguro School of Japanese Sword Fittings Artists. 2016, The Japanese Sword Museum (NBTHK). Hardbound with dust jacket, 8 1/2 x 11", 95 pages in Japanese and English. The Ishiguro School was active in late Edo, working in soft metal with themes of birds and flowers. This beautiful book presents the 6 major members of the school and gives a couple pages to a family member who was a well respected painter. At the tail end of the book is a section on the sandai Masayoshi, taken from historical documents. Pretty much 100% of the text is given in both languages, which is great for those of us not up on our Japanese.
The book is new, mint condition. 1 pound, 5 ounces. $80.
