Meibutsu Japanese swords and sword fittings in american collections
Meibutsu: Japanese Swords and Sword Fittings in American Collections by Token Kai ’79. 1979. Softbound, 8 ½ x 11”, 68 pages in English. A well illustrated catalog with lots of information. 4 tipped in, fold out full length oshigata are included (note: the one pictured to the right is loose from the book. This picture is from a copy of the book I sold some time ago; the oshigata in this book are still attached). Each of the 87 swords is thoroughly discussed, and at the back of the book you get 17 pages of the Gunsaulus Collection of sword fittings.
