B769.  Legend in Japanese Art by Henry L. Joly.  1967.  Hardbound with dust jacket, 8 1/2 x 11 1/2", 623 pages in English, 16 color plates, over 500 black & white photos, and a very thorough text.  This is a description of historical episodes, legendary characters, folk-lore myths, and religious symbolism as they are represented in Japanese art.  A great reference to explain all the myriad stories that make their way onto our swords (carvings) and kodogu.  Condition is excellent; other than a small sticker on the back side of the dust jacket all is fine.

A great book but it has no index, which makes it difficult to use.  Included with the book is another book: People, Places and Things in Henri Joly's Legend in Japanese Art.  1978.  Hardbound with a dust jacket, 6 x 9 1/4", 217 pages.  This is an extensive index to the larger book.  Other than a couple dings to the jacket the book is like new.

7 pounds, 6 ounces.  $125 for both books.
