B259. Japanese Military and Civil Swords and Dirks
B259. Japanese Military and Civil Swords and Dirks by Richard Fuller & Ron Gregory. 1996. Hardbound with dust jacket, 7 ¾ x 10”, 288 pages in English. Long out of print and never to be reprinted, this has been the book to reach for to understand the swords of the Japanese military. This book used to get fantastic prices (I’ve seen it offered near $1,000) but the publication of Jim Dawson’s newest volume has brought the price down a bit. It is still very desirable; I have both on my bookshelf. Hundreds of illustrations, extensive text, a great book.
This copy, not the one in my 1st picture, is in excellent condition. 2 pounds, 6 ounces. $195.
