B388. Individual issues of "Art and the Sword"


B388.  Individual issues of “Art and the Sword” by JSS/US.  Softbound, 6 x 9”, 110 to 120 pages each in English.  Volumes 5 & 6 are bound as one book.  “Art and the Sword” was an annual publication of the Japanese Sword Society of the US, no longer being published and out of print.  The issues have articles on great smiths of Kyoto, Tamba no Kami Yoshimichi, Owari and Akasaka tsuba, Yokoyama Bizen Den swords, swords of Hizen, swords of Owari, and much much more.  These are included in the Index of Japanese Sword Literature on the JSS/US website; there is an index of their contents.

I currently have copies of volumes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6, and 7.  Conditions are excellent.  You can buy as many as you like for $10 each.
