B617. Japanese Swords and Sword Furniture in the Museum of Fine Arts Boston

Price: 
$350 + Shipping & Insurance

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.  $350.
