Win a copy of Arms & Armor of the Medieval Knight
by David Edge and John Miles Paddock!


We've secured a fine copy of the book by David Edge and John Miles Paddock, Arms & Armor of the Medieval Knight. This excellent book is hard to find, being long since out-of-print. As such, it's commanding prices upwards to $200 US. Rumor has it that David Edge, himself, is even seeking copies for his own use!




Published in 1988 by Crescent Books, New York, this book has 320 illustrations, including 150 in color. It comprises a pictorial survey of the weaponry and tactics employed by the medieval knight, from the early days of chain mail and crude helmets to the elaborate suits of full plate armor of the 15th and 16th centuries. Includes a comprehensive glossary of terms and an appendix on the construction of armor. A used copy in a very lightly rubbed jacket but in fine condition. First edition. ISBN 0517644681

This rare book can only be found used and is often listed for prices ranging between $75-$200 US.

I was lucky enough to have purchased a new copy of that book from Walden Books back around 1988. It's the best book of it's kind in terms of big, plentiful, high quality photos of European Armour. This is a real catch!
Constant and true.

This is a great book. I got a copy of the book about two years ago in a used book store for around $10.Razz I love the book and had no idea the book was out of print. Should be in everyone's library.

I have a very battered ,and now incomplete,copy of this book on my workshop bookshelf,and David has been trying to get me another copy as well for the library ! But they are now very difficult to find which is a shame as they really are a must have book if you are at all interested in medieval armour.

what a great prize Happy

Good luck !

This book is regularly on E-Bay. I have purchased no less than 6 copies over the last year as gifts to students/friends.

Haven't paid more than $20.00 for a copy, including shipping and handling.

It may not be readily available in most bookstores... but it is available on internet book sites and E-Bay rather frequently.

Here are a couple copies found on Addall.com:

A quick search of E-bay did not find anything at this moment... however keep looking, they are bound to pop up.

It is an excellent book and I highly recommend it, especially for beginning libraries.
