B612. Nihonto Zuikan Shinto Volume


B612.  Nihonto Zuikan: Shinto by Kataoka.  1977.  Clothbound with slipcase, 8 3/4 x 12″, 991 pages in Japanese.  This is the Shinto volume from the 2 volume set of Nihonto Zuikan, which I also have on the site (B731.  Find the Koto volume at B656).  Great oshigata of great blades from the Shinto era: a wonderful reference.  I have a digital copy of an English index to this book.  If you buy it remind me to send you the index.

A former owner has written the book’s title in English and a bit about the author on the slipcase (this is not the copy in my 1st picture). On the front end paper he has written the title again and his name and stamp are here also. Inscribed by the author on the end paper as well. Condition is quite good; the book has been used but not abused.  10 pounds, 1 ounce.  Now $295.
