B525. Tsuba Shusei by Nakamura

Price: 
$425 + Shipping & Insurance

B525.  Tsuba Shusei by Nakamura.  1963.  Of a limited edition of 1,000.  Clothbound with plastic jacket and slipcase, 11 ½ x 14 ½”, 522 heavy stock pages in Japanese.  This is a very impressive book.  Thousands of tsuba, from Kamakura to late Edo and arranged by school. are illustrated (24 in color photos and the rest in black & white) and described.  If there is a tsuba bible this might be it; there can’t be a more comprehensive book on the subject.

The slipcase (not the one in my picture) is dinged & stained but still holding together and protecting the book.  There is a bit of foxing on the book but otherwise great condition.  10 pounds, 6 ounces.  Now $425.
