Over the next couple of weeks I will be listing about 300 items, mostly rare books and magazines, but also woodblock prints, Oriental art objects, dolls, statues, all dealing with the martial arts in one way or another.
These items are all from Don Warrener’s huge personal library and his collection of many beautiful Oriental objects, spanning more than fifty years of collecting.
Mr. Warrener was deeply involved in the martial arts and in his dojo, many years before I went to work for him in 1979. He made many trips to Japan and Hong Kong and met and trained with many well known martial artists. I was lucky enough to go on one of those trips and was able to purchase a few amazing items as well.
After opening 32 franchises in Canada Mr. Warrener decided to move to California and now produces DVDs.
He has now decided to pass these objects on, so if you are interested in rare books, signed by the author fifty years ago, or Japanese art objects purchased in Japan then this is the place to check out.
All items will be shipped first class to anywhere in the world. If you happen to be close enough to Mr. Warrener’s store, located in North Hills, California, he would be happy to make arrangements for you to pick up your purchase. Any questions are welcome.
