Swords and Daggers: An Illustrated Handbook
Carefully researched, crisply written text traces the development of hand weapons from ancient times to the 20th century, and considers their importance as tools of battle as well as their dress and ceremonial significance. Captioned illustrations for more than 250 weapons depict bronze swords made almost 3,000 years ago, a sharply curved 18th-century Turkish kilij, and a wide range of sabers, broadswords, and rapiers. An indispensable sourcebook for collectors, students of warfare, and weaponry enthusiasts. 253 black-and-white illustrations.
