B884. Hoto Fu: Lineage of the Treasure Swords. Hardbound
B884. Hoto Fu. Lineage of the Treasure Swords: Masterpieces from the Collection of the Futarasan-Jinja Shrine 2012. hardbound, 9 x 11 3/4″, 144 pages in Japanese. Some of the captions are in English also and there is a list of plates in English at the back of the book. The Futarasan Shrine in Nikko has a great collection and they turned out a beautiful book. Many of their swords are 0-dachi, tachi of extraordinary length; all of them are important. I have this book also in the softbound edition for less money; see B938.
One corner has been bumped just a tad; otherwise condition is new; the book is unread. 2 pound, 6 ounces. $125.
