B1079. Kokusai Tosogu Kai 2005 Exhibition Supplement


B1079. Kokusai Tosogu Kai 2005 International Convention & Exhibition Supplement. 2007. Softbound, 8 1/2 x 11″, 109 pages in English. The KTK is an invitation only society of Japanese sword fittings collectors from around the world. Once each year they have a meeting and publish a catalog of the members’ displayed objects. 2005 was their 1st meeting and, due to time constraints, photos of items owned by US and Canadian members were left out of that year’s catalog. This supplement shows what was missing. I count 65 fine pieces: tsuba, kotsuka, menuki, koshirae, and a sword, shown in crisp black & white and a few in color photos. A couple articles round off the book. Condition is excellent. 1 pound, 3 ounces. Now $30.
