B427. Yushuto Zuroku IV by NTHK NPO
B427. Yushuto Zuroku by NTHK NPO. 2015. Clothbound with slipcase, 8 1/2 x 12″, 255 pages in Japanese with a list of plates in English. Yushu Saku is the NTHK’s equivalent of Juyo Token from the NBTHK. 3 volumes of this book were printed while the group’s founder, Yoshikawa Koen, was alive; this is the 1st to be printed since. 123 great blades are shown in crisp black & white photography. This book is included in the Index of Japanese Sword Literature on the JSS/US website; there is an index of its contents.
These 4 volumes are 1st class references, both for the quality of production and for the fact that they contain swords by smiths who often don’t make it into other books. I currently have all 4; check them out please.
The book is new, perfect condition. 3 pounds 13 ounces. Was $140, now $95.
