The Nihon jōdai is a monumental book from 1944, completely dedicated to the old, pre-Heian, armours of Japan. It includes also study reproductions. Masao Suenaga is one of the handful armour researchers that people still talk about with a lot of respect. In 1981, the book was bundled with Nihon jōdai no buki (1941) in a fabulous bookset, see B0206.
