Blue linen cloth. Folio. 135pp. Dust jacket. Slipcase. Illustrated. First edition. The rare hardcover edition of this exhibition catalogue. Dr. Walter A. Compton had the most important collection of Japanese swords and sword furnishings in America. A wonderful reference with outlines of blades, nomenclature, points of value, appreciation, history of the Japanese sword, shapes, identification points, Koshirae, Kodogu, explanation of tang form and file-marks, tempering and forging characteristics, engravings, signature, mountings and accessories. With essays by Homma Junji, Sato Kanichi, Compton, and Ogawa Morihoro. Over 100 illustrations, many in color. A very good copy with some light abrading to the front cover near the hinge at the left side. The cover cloth is otherwise clean and unworn. The text and plates are in excellent condition with no marks or wear. The attractive black dust jacket is fine and unworn. The tan cardboard slipcase is very good with some light soiling and wear. Postage extra. N° de ref. de la librería 4973
