B438. Tsuba Meisaku Shu, 1952 Edition
B438. Tsuba Meisaku Shu by Dr. Homma. 1952. Clothbound with a plastic jacket, 8 1/2 x 12″, at least 300 pages in Japanese and English. Nothing but the greatest tsuba, some in color, the majority in black & white, printed one side of the page only. There is an introduction, a list of plates, and an examination of tsuba history, artists, and schools in English. Each tsuba is described in English also. This is a beautiful book.
I have also 2 other editions of this title; see B458 and B459. The condition of this book is excellent, wonderful. 4 pounds, 1 ounce. Was $250, now $200.
