B1053. Nobuiye Tsuba Kantei Hikkei with supplements
B1053. Nobuiye Tsuba Kantei Hikkei by Matsuzawa Senbo, with 3 supplements and complete translation. 1980. Softbound, 7 x 10 1/4″, 110 to 120 pages total in Japanese (the translation is in English). This book has come to me from a long time consignor to my site; here is what he told me about it. This was self published by the author in a very limited edition. After initial publication there were 3 supplements, which have been pasted into the back of the book (this is a complete set). The translation was done by Markus Sesko: a private effort for 4 collectors in the west. This book almost never comes available; this copy is the 1st I’ve ever seen and only the 2nd copy for the consignor in 10 years of searching.
The subject, of course, is the great master Nobuiye: his work, different generations, and much more. If you study Nobuiye you want this book and this copy may be your only chance to own one; no idea where I’d find another.
Condition is excellent: read but not abused. 14 ounces. $425.
