B465. The Henry D. Rosin Collection of Japanese Sword Fittings. Undated. Clothbound with dust jacket, 8 1/2 x 12″, 135 pages in English. The Rosin collection is unusual in that is among a very few great collections of great kodogu collected by a westerner after WWII. It is also unusual for it’s focus: only the very best. Beautiful book with a few hundred exceptional pieces by the greatest artists: Goto, Yasuchika, Jingo, Somin, Matashichi, and others. Both iron and kinko; very early and late. Condition is excellent; with prices realized. 2 pounds, 2 ounces. Was $95, now $60.
