B1069. 19 Years of Dai Token Ichi Catalogs


B1069. Dai Token Ichi catalogs from 2001 to 2019; 19 catalogs for one price. Each catalog is softbound, 7 x 10″, early issues are 100 or so pages, later issues are about 180 pages, in Japanese. Also included are lists of plates in English for the years from 2009 to 2013. The Dai Token Ichi is the greatest of all Japanese sword shows. Every year the top dealers in Japan gather to show off and sell their treasures: swords, fittings, armor, matchlocks, and more. Every year they publish a catalog; it is spectacular.

Conditions are like new for all 19 books. Normally I ask between $40 and $70 for an individual catalog; less than $30 each for this set. 22 pounds, 4 ounces. $495.
