B939. Nihonto Koza Volume IX, Koto Part 3, by Honma & Koizumi, translated by Harry Watson, 1994. Hardbound, 8 1/4 x 11″, about 500 pages in English. Of the 6 volumes of Nihonto Koza that Harry has translated (all out of print), this is the most difficult to find. About 100 pages on Chikuzen and the rest is Bizen. Oshigata, photos, charts, glossary, schools, smiths, dates, pretty much everything: great book.
The book is like new and is inscribed to a former owner by Mr. Watson. There are a few words written by a former owner on one of the blank back end pages. 4 pounds, 6 ounces. $225.
