This is a copy of the first volume of the Yûshûtô Zuroku book published by the NTHK in Japan. Yûshû is the rating given to swords that compares to the Jûyô Tôken rating of the NBTHK. This is the first volume which was published in 1979 and it is long out of print. This book contains oshigata and write-ups on 150 blades of the finest quality. There are some fine black and white photos of some of the blades also.
What makes this book a truly valuable study aid is the complete English translation which accompanies it. This book is a must for any library. I have four copies of this book and translation. When they are gone, there will be no more. I am selling these books on consignment for the NTHK and they are all brand new and never been used.
