B115. Shuppin Katana Zuroku: Hokkaido Toko Zufu. 1975. Clothbound with slipcase, 7 1/2 x 10 1/2″, 157 pages in Japanese. This is a record of an exhibit in Hokkaido, the northmost main island of Japan, including great blades (of course) from Koto, Shinto, and Gendai, from all of Japan and especially Hokkaido. There are quite a few photographs of swordsmiths; Gendaito played a large part in the exhibit.
A former owner has his stamp on the slipcase and his name on the front end paper; he has written the title in English neatly on the spine of the slipcase. Condition is excellent. 1 pound, 13 ounces. $95.
