Samurai and the culture of Japan's great peace

Image of item
The samurai, Japan’s medieval and early modern military nobility, have for centuries captivated imaginations far beyond the con?nes of their own time and culture. This beautifully illustrated volume presents a large and diverse selection of samurai treasures from the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History’s renowned collection of Japanese artifacts. Among the fascinating objects are recently restored swords, scabbards and armour, along with an array of prints, dishes, tea ceremony utensils, netsukes, scroll paintings and other items suggestive of unexpectedly tranquil pursuits. The book introduces the samurai not only as warriors but also as keepers of the longest peace any large society has ever known.
