C264. Kin no Tachi To Gin no Tachi


C264.  Kin no Tachi To Gin no Tachi 1996.  Softbound, 8 1/4 x 11 3/4″, 116 pages in Japanese.  This is the 1st time with this book for me; didn’t know it existed.  Very early swords, fittings, and other objects from the Kofun, burial mounds dating from the 3rd to 7th centuries AD, are shown in crisp color photogreaphy.  Other books touch on the subject; this is the only one I know of to cover just this topic.

Other than for lite shelf wear to the cover the book is in excellent condition. It is with a trusted consignor in the US; he will ship and my usual guarantee applies. 1 pound, 7 ounces.  Now $95.
