B886. Nippon Toh
B886. Nippon Toh. No date or author. Softbound, 8 1/4 x 5 1/4″, about 40 pages, all text in both English and Japanese. This is a reproduction and translation of an advertisement from T. Nakahara & Co. (dating to pre war 20th century) for buying swords made by Gassan Sadakatsu. Quite interesting read: it gives you a brief history of the smith and and his heritage, and then moves on to particulars of ordering and all the options you have if placing an order. A few illustrations but mostly text.
There is a small scuff on both the front and back covers; otherwise the book is like new. 4 ounces. $60.
