B961. Gyobutsu Tohaku Meito Oshigata

$150 + Shipping & Insurance

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..
