If you are stuck at home sometime on a quiet, rainy day, you might want to take a look at this site and experience some wonderful old b&w arms & arnour photos. They are from the " Elenco delle opere secondo il Catalogo Angelucci (1890)" and are available here .....
http://www.artito.arti.beniculturali.it/Armer...13.asp?L=A
which is part of the " L'Armeria Reale di Torino" ( thats Torino, Italy, not the one in Madrid, Spain) here...
http://www.artito.arti.beniculturali.it/Armer...rmeria.htm
For convienience, I have included a translated page of the contents of the Catalogue which uses an Alphabetical list, Its shoud be pointed out that the contents of each group belong to the letter on the left and not on the right hand side.....
Enjoy !

Hi Bruno... Thanks for the human touch on translation ! Did you get to go through most of the letters...some dont have much while others are full of great stuff ! I saved about 300 items and Im still going. I have found that some of the items provide a visual answer to some of the questions that have been asked on various A&A forums including myArmoury.

I installed Mozilla Firefox out of interrest and then ran the pages side by side but I cant see any difference except the Mozilla typeface is bigger.......Im running XP, mabye Im doing something wrong ?

Cheers Bruno...

Maybe some problems with my sight ... too little thing get unnoticed by me even with glasses. Aging process has definitely started ...

Here to help anyway if terminology seems abstruse, keep in mind that classic archeology in Italy uses a nineteenth century style language.
