B765. Shinto Taikan by Iimura
B765. Shinto Taikan by Iimura. 1976. Clothbound in 2 volumes, with slipcases, 8 ¾ x 12”, 1,650 pages total in Japanese. This is probably the most thorough reference to swords of the Shinto period. Volume 1 is oshigata and 2 is photos, all very high quality. A great reference for swords of the last 400 years. I have a digital copy of an English index to this book. If you buy it remind me to send you the index.
The slipcases are a bit smudged and one of them is split along a corner for a few inches (still works fine to hold the book). Conditions of the books are excellent. 16 pounds, 11 ounces. $500.
