B961. Gyobutsu Tohaku Meito Oshigata
B961. Gyobutsu Tohaku Meito Oshigata by Sato and Numata. 1958. Silkbound with slipcase, 10 1/4 x 14 1/2", 367 pages in Japanese. This is a book of oshigata of the swords in the Imperial Household Collection (they have nice stuff). Incredible pieces, many of which, I would guess, are pictured in no other books anywhere. This is an early book and scarce; this is my 2nd copy on the site ever. Nearly every page is either oshigata or description of 1 or 2 fine swords. This title is included in the Index of Japanese Sword Literature on the JSS/US website; there is an English index.
The book has been used but not abused; it appears to have been opened a lot (see my last picture. The 1st picture is of that other copy I sold earlier). The book is with a trusted consignor to my site; he will ship from the US and my usual guarantee applies. My 1st copy sold at $200 but because of the wrinkled spine this one is less. 6 pounds, 9 ounces. $150..
