B593. Nihon no Furuju
B593. Nihon no Furuju by Sawada Taira. 1995. Softbound, 8 1/2 x 12″, 231 pages in Japanese. This is a very impressive book about old Japanese guns. After a few pages of color plates at the front the rest of the book is given to text and extensive black & white photography (there are very few pages without at least 1 photograph). Everything from small pistols to cannons, with lots of detail throughout: it’s difficult to imagine that there is a more thorough coverage of the subject.
Condition is excellent, like new. 2 pounds, 9 ounces. Was $130, now $95
