B854. Nihonto Tsuba Kodogu Yuhin Zuikan
B854. Nihonto Tsuba Kodogu Yuhin Zuikan. 1971. Clothbound with plastic jacket. 7 1/4 x 10 1/4″, 188 pages in Japanese. The first 69 pages of this book are given to sharp black & white photos of great blades; the next 60 are photos of tsuba and kodogu, all fine pieces.
The covers are a bit bowed outward, due, I believe, to a recent drastic change in humidity (the book just arrived from a desert). My experience is that this will correct itself. Otherwise condition is excellent. 2 pounds. $40.
