Recommended reading for medieval archery fanatics
Archery fanatic "Håkan"
Toxophilus: The School of Shooting in Two Books (Leather Bound)
"It should not be missed by anyone claiming to be interested in medieval archery. Definately top marks."
Longbow: A Social and Military History
"Sir Robert Hardy's book on the longbow. Now including a chapter on the Mary Rose bows and the making of two replicas."
The Traditional Bowyer's Bible volume 1
"If you want to build your own bows this series is the one to buy. Vol. 1 covers bow design, glues, tillering and much more."
The Traditional Bowyer's Bible Volume 2
"The bowyer's bible epic continues. Vol. 2 covers bows from boards and strings among other things."
The Traditional Bowyer's Bible volume 3
"Formerly known as the last part in the series. Learn to knap your own stone points among other things."
Traditional Bowyer's Bible: 4
"The newest volume in the TBB epic. I'll hold my breath until I can get the hardback version."
The Medieval Archer
"A close look at medieval archery including battle strategies."
Bows of the World
"A look at bow designs other than western european. Interesting but lacking info on arrows and methods of release."
The Traditional Archers Handbook: A Practical Guide
"If you're just starting this might be a good buy but I'd go for The Bowyers Bible series, this one does not explain why a certain design works. Good tips on bow maintenance."
The Flat Bow
"Written prior to the fibre-glass era. Apparently they could make bows without fibre-glass backing"
"There's nothing new under the sun. The Chinese developed bows too. Some crossbow info as well."
Zen in the Art of Archery: Training the Mind and Body to Become One (Arkana)
"Archery from a completely different point of view. If you're a modern competitive archer I strongly recommend this one."
The Book of the Crossbow: 22 (Dover Military History, Weapons, Armor)
"The crossbow information should be taken with a fistful of salt but it has some good info on the Turkish horn bow, albeit a bit short."
The Great Warbow
"Sadly, this tome sits in my bookshelf unread. So many books, so little time. What I've seen so far when browsing through it looks very promising indeed."
The Crooked Stick: A History of the Longbow (Weapons in History)
"Another archery book in the 'to read later' pile. It's not that it doesn't look promising, I simply want to wait until I can give it my undivided attention."
Secrets of the English War Bow
The Romance of Archery: A Social History of the Longbow
"Released in June 2008, or at least that was the original date. It has now been pushed back to late October."
Crossbows in the Royal Netherlands Army Museum
"A wonderful catalogue, in three languages, from a wonderful exhibition. Best bought elsewhere though, a price close to £4,9k is robbery, plain and simple."
European Crossbows: A Survey by Josef Alm (Royal Armouries Monograph)
"One of the few good crossbow books. The 1994 translation of the swedish original published in 1947."
"THE crossbow book to own. Hard to find, but worth every penny, especially if you read german."
Arrowstorm The World of the Archer in the Hundred Years War
"Who were the archers of the Hundred Years' War, and how were they supplied?"
