B587. Nihon Jodai no Buki
B587. Nin Jodai no Buki by Masao Suenaga. 1943. Hardbound, 7 1/4 x 10 1/2″, about 550 pages in Japanese. The title of this book translates roughly as Japan Old Times Weapons. Drawings, maps, and photographs cover a great variety of early armament. I think it’s quite unusual to have a book published when this was; you’d think Japan would be preoccupied in 1943, but here it is. Fun to page through; many things I hadn’t seen before.
Corners have been bumped and the hinges have been professionally repaired; the book is in fine condition for its age. 3 pounds, 3 ounces. Was $80. Now $40.
