No marks or writing observed in text. Binding tight and square. Dust jacket is very good with one small closed tear. Gently read. . . . . . . . . . . The word samurai evokes intense images of indomitable warriors, expert swordsmen capable of taking on overwhelming odds-and emerging victorious. But this popular image only brushes the surface of the samurai tradition. The Samurai Swordsman: Master of War brings to life the history behind the courageous and highly disciplined fighting men of early Japan. . . . . . . . I have read most of the way through, and am very happy with this book. The text is engaging and full of interesting facts and anecdotes, the abundant illustrations make for an excellent collection of Japanese art, and the author's command of the subject matter is apparent. This is one I will read through several times. -- Frederick N. Bosworth
