B678. Minamoto Kiyomaro
B678. Minamoto Kiyomaro. 1983. Clothbound with slipcase, 8 1/2 x 12″, 122 pages in Japanese. Kiyomaro was the bright light of Shinshinto; he is often referred to as the Shinshinto Masamune. He had a short career, left fewer than average works behind, and commands incredible prices on today’s market. 43 of his blades are illustrated, each with a crisp photo and a very well done oshigata. Great stuff; beautiful book.
