Notes

Uncommon Japanese work, just a single copy recorded in the National Diet Library. Guide to the practice and cultural significance of kendo, endorsed by the Nagano Prefecture Chapter of the Dainihon Butokukai Great Japan Martial Virtue Association. On the first free endpaper there is a hand-drawn diagram labelled 'Training Method', showing a sequence of three concentric circles, starting in the centre with 'kendo' and 'self', then 'kendo' and 'national morality', then 'military' and 'love of humanity', and on the rear an ownership inscription dated "22 January 1939, Second Year, Matsushiro Industrial School", of Takao Kobayashi, perhaps a relative of the author.
