B430. Tsuba Kanshoki by Torigoye


B430.  Tsuba Kanshoki by Torigoye.  1964.  Clothbound with slipcase and cardboard storage box, 8 1/4 x 12 1/4″, 524 pages in Japanese.  This is the earlier, all Japanese edition of this book.  The first 162 pages are predominately text; the rest are sharp, life size black & white photos of close to 700 great tsuba.  At the back of the book is a fold out timeline of schools and artists.  The tsuba included in this book are not all the same as those in the later edition, by the way.  Any case, they are both great references.

I have the later edition also; see B823.

Condition is excellent, near new.  6 pounds, 4 ounces.  Was $300, now $200.
