Format: Paperback
this book is a collection of amazing and totally realistic drawing (black&withe) of weapons and armors (191 pages).
in this book you can find (of every tipe of weapon as sword,club,dagger,bow,handguns,cannons and so on) the illustrated story of the weapons or armors trought countrys and centurys, the pages are made of illustrations and near the illustration a little descrition (ex:thirteenth century english cross-bow)
the armor section is not good as the weapons one.
this book its a must and every one should have it in his library.

if you are an artis or a student who needs an archive of weapons and armors this is your book !

An Excellent Resource for Arms and Armor 14 Oct. 2013
By Treborian Reld - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am an artist specializing in drawings and paintings of armed, armored warriors between the time of the Greeks to the time of the Renaissance. This is one of the first books I purchased as a reference guide to the design of such armor and weapons as these warriors might use. I have no regrets! Not only does Mr. Hart's pictorial archive provide great examples of the arms and armor used during this span of time, but it provides some of the very best black and white drawings I have ever found on the subject. What's more, these pictures are drawn from real examples of the highest quality of these items to be found. It is an amazing work of art in and of itself!

Creating weapons and armor is the one craft man has always excelled at. If you are looking for a great reference book depicting how this craft has developed and changed over the centuries, this is a great one to start with! I highly recommend it! A+++++
