Sasano Masayuki: MASTERPIECES FROM THE SASANO COLLECTION - PART ONE. London, 1994. 328 pp. 297 illustrations of 297 tsuba in actual size. 25x18 cm. Cloth.
The result of 20 years of informed study eclipses Mr. Sasano's earlier work on Sukashi tsuba, already a classic in its own right. The present book, in only 400 copies, challenges many traditional ideas relating to Japanese sword guards. A major publication on the subject. Now at a significantly reduced price to clear stock.
