B791. Ancient Japanese Swords and Sword Fittings


B791.  Ancient Japanese Swords and Sword Fittings.  1982.  Softbound, 6 1/4 x 9 1/4″, about 120 pages in Japanese.  Never seen this book before.  Obviously a reprint of an early Japanese woodblock print book but it doesn’t tell us which one.  Line drawings of swords and fittings from the very early periods of Nihonto.  There is a short rip at the top of the spine, a couple tiny dings to the cover and a lightly bumped corner; otherwise condition is fine.  9 ounces.  Was $25; now$15.
