C110. Kanzan Token Koza volumes 5 & 6
C110. Kanzan Token Koza volumes 5 & 6. Various authors. 1982. Clothbound in slipcases, 9 x 12 1/2", 452 and 466 pages in Japanese. Kanzan Token Koza is a 6 volume set that must have been published serially. For whatever reason, volumes 1 to 4 are relatively easy to find and volumes 5 & 6 are quite scarce. These books were published after the death of Dr. Kanzan Sato, one of the founders of the NBTHK and The National Sword Museum in Tokyo and a world class scholar on Shinto, swords of 1600 and later. The 1st 4 volumes of the set cover swords and swordsmiths; these 2 volumes cover kodogu. Hundreds of examples of fine fittings are shown in crisp color and black & white photos, accompianied by a very thorough text.
