B734. Uchigatana Koshirae with translation by Tokyo National Museum
B734. Uchigatana Koshirae by Tokyo National Museum. Clothbound with slipcase and cardboard storage box, 10 ¼ x 14 ½”, 294 pages with an introduction and list of plates in English. This is likely the most thorough presentation of koshirae, sword mountings, ever in print. The Tokyo National Museum has the best collection and this book shows the best of it. Great photos, and multiple photos for each mounting, showing details and parts. A very important and beautiful book.
I have a digital copy of a complete translation to English of this book. If you buy the book remind me to send you the translation.
Other than for light toning, shelf wear to the slipcase, condition is excellent. This book is with a trusted consignor to my site; he will ship from the US. My usual guarantee applies.5 pounds, 15 ounces. $195.
