B924. Nobuiye Tsuba by Ikeda


B924.  Nobuiye Tsuba by Ikeda Suematsu.  1995.  Clothbound with slipcase, 14 1/2 x 10 1/2″, 63 pages in Japanese.  Beautiful pieces by the most important maker of iron tsuba.  Crisp black & white photos and many rubbingsof great tsuba. This is a beautiful book that is incredibly difficult to find; I think this is only my 3rd copy ever.

I currently have the companion book, Yamashiro Kuni Fushimi no Ju Kaneiye Tsuba; see B689.


A former owner has written the title in English on the spine of the slipcase. Condition is excellent, near mint. 2 pounds, 5 ounces.  Now $295.
