B606. Shinto Shu by Fujishiro with full translation
B606. Shinto Shu by Fujishiro. 1971. Clothbound with plastic jacket and slipcase, 7 1/2 x 10 1/2″, 223 pages in Japanese. Hundreds of well done oshigata of important smiths of Shinto (new sword period). Great companion volume to Fujishiro’s Nihon Toko Jiten.
Included with the book is a clothbound, 8 1/2 x 11″, 67 page translation of the text to English by Steven Winkley. This is the first time for me to see a clothbound copy of this translation; didn’t know such a thing existed.
The book is is well read: the cover is rubbed a tiny bit on a bottom edge and the binding is a bit bothered. No loose pages; it has been used. The translation is as new. 3 pounds, 14 ounces. $150.
