Kyomono no Ko-Meisaku: The Early Famed Works of the Kyoto Smiths By Yoshikawa Koen, translation by Gordon Robson

The Japanese version of this book was published in 1980, in conjunction with the 11th National Convention of the Nihon Token Hozon Kai (NTHK). The 1st half of the book is beautifully done oshigata and extensive commentary on 33 very important Koto swords from the Yamashiro Den. National Treasures, six blades from the Imperial household collection, and other fine works are included. Six pieces of excellent Kinko kodogu are shown in color at the middle of the book. 40 great blades from the Osaka-Kobe branch of the NTHK, oshigata and descriptions, fill the last half of the book This book is 8 ¼ x 10 ¾”, perfect soft bound on 100# gloss stock, and 142 pages. All oshigata are life size and very clearly reproduced. The book is $75 shipped to people in the U.S.A. People in other countries will be charged the actual extra postage costs. Please p.m. me with your address and I will give you the information for paying the JSSUS. Once these five copies are sold they will only be available as used copies in the aftermarket.
