B201. 25 of the Florida Token Kai Reprints of Token Bijutsu English
B201. 25 reprints of the English edition of Token Bijutsu from Florida Token Kai. Softbound stapled, 7 1/4 x 10 1/4", about 40 pages each. The FTK reprinted volumes 1 to 40 of the 59 volumes of Token Bijutsu English from the NBTHK before they ceased publication; this is a grouping of 25 of their reprints (if you want to see what the original set was like see B747 on my site). Token Bijutsu is, in my opinion, the best material on Nihonto in English; full sets of 59 are not often offered for sale and are pricey when the are. This group includes Token Bijutsu volumes 1-3, 5-6, 12-13, 17, 23-32, & 34-39 (FTK issues 32-4, 36-7, 43-4, 48, 54-63, & 65-70). This is a great reference with gobs of useful information, and it isn't expensive. The 59 volumes are included in The Index of Japanese Sword Literature at jssus.org, there is an index to this set.
Note: my pictures are of a different group of FTK reprints sold earlier; covers are the same but pictured pages may or may not be included in this group. Other than for very minor dings, conditions are excellent. 6 pounds, 9 ounces. $150.
