B711. Japanese Swordsmiths Revised by Hawley
B711. Japanese Swordsmiths Revised by W. M. Hawley. 1981. Hardbound, 8 ¾ x 11 ¼”, 1,069 pages in English. The book starts with Kanji used in signatures, provinces, carvings, and more. The next 1,046 pages are a listing of about 32,000 swordsmiths with typical signatures in English and Kanji, provinces, cross references to a few other books, and a relative point value. Everybody wants a copy of this book.
The top of the spine has been torn for a couple inches (see my last picture); otherwise the book is in great condition for its age.. 6 pounds, 1 0unce. Normally I ask $350 for this title; due to the spine this one can be had for $300.
