B761. The Arts of the Japanese Sword by Robinson


B761.  The Arts of the Japanese Sword by B.W. Robinson.  Hardbound there is no dust jacket, 6 1/4 x 10″, about 200 pages in English.  A good introduction to Nihonto, with charts, drawings, photos in color and black & white, and a thorough text.  Lots of information and please disregard what the author has to say about cleaning tsuba.

The copy of this book I currently have is different from than the one in my 1st picture; there is no dust jacket. The book is in good, used but not abused condition.  1 pound, 13 ounces.  $30.

There is a 2nd copy of this book with a consignor in The Netherlands.  Condition is excellent with only 1 identification mark on the 1st page, my usual guarantee applies, same price, and if you live in Europe you can save money on post.  Let me know if you want this copy.
