I have two copies of the Koyo Gunkan, so I've listed one for sale. It is the cleanest and newest of my two copies, in very excellent condition. Buying it on amazon.co.jp would probably cost well over $50, so hopefully this is a good deal:

This is a a near-pristine copy of the Takeda clan's "Koyo Gunkan" a comprehensive history of the Takeda clan of 16th century Japan and manual of war and philosophy. Each chapter includes first the original archaic Japanese text followed by a modern Japanese translation, and a comprehensive introduction gives details on the history of the Takeda clan, clan genealogy, and a history of the circumstances of the Koyo Gunkan. The book is hardcover in excellent condition, and comes with a hardcover case which is in great condition with a little shelf wear.

The Strategist Yamamoto Kansuke

Just put a bid on it. This will give me extra motivation to pick up on my Japanese faster.
