B650. Japanese Spears: Polearms and Their Use in Old Japan by Knutsen
B650. Japanese Spears: Polearms and Their Use in Old Japan by Roald & Patricia Knutsen. 2004 1st edition. Hardbound with dust jacket, 7 1/4 x 10″, about 220 pages in English. There are surprisingly few book on this subject and I can’t think of another in English. Very thorough: the 1st 128 pages are text, discussing the differt forms and how they were used in warfare, and the rest of the book is illustrations: drawings and photos to match the text. Also touches on the martial art of the polearm.
The book is like new. It is with a trusted consignor to my site who will ship from Europe; my usual guarantee applies. 1 pound, 14 ounces. $85.
