B124. Meito Shubi by Dr. Honma


B124.  Meito Shubi by Dr. Honma and the NBTHK.  1948.  Clothbound, 10 1/4 x 14 1/2″, close to 300 pages in Japanese.  The fact that this book was published so soon after the war is amazing; most everything and especially paper was scarce in Japan.  This may be the 1st ever publication of the newly formed NBTHK.  Great swords in black & white, only the best.

Corners have been bumped a bit but otherwise condition is excellent.  4 pounds, 10 ounces.  Was $450, now $195.
