B770. Toko Taikan by Tokuno

$80.00

B770.  Toko taikan by Tokuno.  1975.  Clothbound with dust jacket, 5 ¼ x 7 ½”, 794 pages in Japanese.  Thousands of Swordsmiths, many listings with oshigata, are presented.  A useful book if for no other reason than for the relative rankings of the smiths, which serves to give you a good idea of the value of a particular sword.  It’s nice also that the book is small and easily carried to shows.  I have a digital copy of an index in English; if you buy this remind me to send it to you.

Condition is excellent. I have 2 copies of the book: one here with me and the other (with a different dust jacket) is with a trusted consignor to my site who will ship from Europe. You are buying the one closest to you and my usual guarantee applies. 2 pounds, 11 ounces.  $80.
