B555. Tsuba no Bi by Kajima
B555. Tsuba no Bi by Kajima. 1970. Clothbound with slipcase, 9 x 12 ½”, 275 pages in Japanese. 364 very fine tsuba are shown in black & white and some color photographs, nice crisp quality pictures and many of the tsuba are shown both sides. Early and late, iron and kinko, all of them great or better. A beautiful book. I have a digital copy of an English translation of the photo captions; if you buy this book remind me to send it to you.
The slipcase is well dinged, separating along edges here and there, and a small piece has broken loose from the bottom of the spine (I have the piece and will include it with the book). The book itself is just fine. 4 pounds, 13 ounces. Was $200; now $75.
