Kenji Tomiki / Japan Travel Bureau (1956)
Summary: Renamed "Judo: With Aikido" in latest editions, this book is authored by Kenji Tomiki, one of the pillars of modern Judo and Aikido, and the founder of the Tomiki System of Aikido, which utilizes competition and scoring similar to competitive Judo. The book is a brief overview of dojo etiquette, and is well illustrated with technical photography. The Aikido "Appendix" comprises approximately forty percent of the overall volume, and is believed to be the earliest English-language Aikido work. Some early First Printings utilized an alternative (drawn vs. photo) dust jacket.
