143 pages in Japanese with a list of plates in English.  This is a beautiful and very well illustrated book about the most important smith of Shinshinto time: Kiyomaro.  57 blades are shown in exceptionally sharp photographs, 3 or 4 each including an extreme closeup that clearly shows hada and hamon.
