B871. Koto Meikan by Markus Sesko
B871. Koto Meikan by Markus Sesko. 2014. Hardbound, 8 1/4 x 11″, 696 pages, text in English. This is a book of over 2,000 oshigata from over 900 of the most important smiths of the Koto era (before 1600). Oshigata and an index and nothing else. Each signature and date, if there is one, are translated into English. As Meikan and Taikan go, this one is quite reasonably priced; should prove very useful.
Condition is as new. 4 pounds, 2 ounces. $80.
