B732. Zusetsu Bungo To by Yamada


B732.  Zusetsu Bungoto by Yamada.  1974.  Clothbound with slipcase, 7 ½ x 10 ½”, 457 pages in Japanese.  A few photos and a great bunch of well done oshigata of blades by the smiths of Bungo and the Takada School, swords that often come available today.  Also known as The Bungo Taikan, this is a great reference.

I have a digital copy of an English translation of the table of contents of this book.  If you buy the book remind me to send it to you.

The slipcase of this book, which is not the one in my 1st picture, has come apart at the corners and was taped on the inside. The tape has let loose. I’ll send the slipcase with the book but it will need some repair before it is usable. The book was suffering with a distressed binding. I took it to a book binder who has done a magnificent job or putting it right; he tells me the binding now is better and stronger than the original. Other than for a couple small tape residue spots on the cover, the book is in excellent condition.  4 pounds, 13 ounces.  $135.
