B617. Japanese Swords and Sword Furniture in the Museum of Fine Arts Boston
B617. Japanese Swords and Sword Furniture in the Museum of Fine Arts Boston by Morihiro Ogawa. 1987. Clothbound with dust jacket, 10 ¼ x 14 ¾”, 423 pages in English. Also included is a softbound Glossary, same size and also by Ogawa.
This is a beautiful book and a very good reference. The collection at the Boston Museum is important and this book shows it well. Great swords and impressive koshirae & kodogu; lots to love. Essays on the history and art of the sword are included as well. This book is included in the Index of Japanese Sword Literature on the JSS/US website; there is an index of its contents. I also have this book in Japanese at a lesser price; see C181.
There is a bit of foxing at the top of the page block; otherwise conditions of both volumes are excellent. 10 pounds, 1 ounce. $400.
