B564. Yumei Koto Taikan by Iimura


B564.   Yumei Koto Taikan by Iimura.  1982.  Clothbound with plastic jacket and slipcase, 8 ½ x 12”, 840 pages in Japanese.  Hundreds and hundreds of oshigata and photos of blades from the Koto period; this is a very important and useful reference.  I have a copy on my book shelf; wouldn’t be without it.  I have a digital copy of an English index to this book.  If you buy it remind me to send the index..

When I bought this book it had a compromised binding but I have taken it to a first class book binder and now it is in excellent condition. (the binder tells me the new binding is stronger than the original). The slipcase is a bit shelf worn but nothing serious; the book is in excellent condition. 8 pounds, 9 ounces. $475.
