Nihon Toko Jiten - Koto & Shinto


A used set of Nihon Toko Jiten Koto Hen & Shinto Hen by Fujishiro Matsuo.  One of the absolute standard references for any collector of Japanese swords, and one of the first references that I had when starting this addiction, fifty-odd years ago.    My only complaint is that they are arranged as the Iroha, a Heian period poem by Madam Murakami, using all sounds only once, instead of the standard kana: a e i o u, ka ki ku ke ko, etc.   Slip covers, and in good condition.
