B668. Meihin Katanaezu Shusei by Tanobe


B668.  Meihin Katanaezu Shusei by Tanobe Michihiro.  1999.  Special cloth binding with bone clipped slipcase, 14 ½ x 20 ½”, 209 pages in Japanese.  What can I say; everything about this book is extraordinary.  It is huge, spectacular, rare (printed in a limited edition of 600 and sold out before it was released), and beautiful.  Mr. Tanobe held an important position with the NBTHK and The National Sword Museum in Tokyo.  He did many of the full length oshigata that appeared as foldouts in “Token Bijutsu”.  Tanobe-sensei did exquisite oshigata and many of them are collected in this volume.

You get the oshigata and sharp black & white photos and more, all of the greatest swords ever made.  Everybody wants this book. Included also is am index in English.

Condition is pristine, like new. 14 pounds, 10 ounces.  $850.
