This listing is marked SOLD and is no longer available


This is a large German book tracing the development of European war headgear from the bronze age through the 20th century, showcasing items from collections of the Museum of German History. The book is quite large, weighing nearly 4 pounds; it's over 300 pages, and is 12" tall x 9.5" wide x ~1.25" thick. The text is in German, but around 140 pages of the book show nothing but high-quality color and B&W photos. The rest of the text is well illustrated with period illustrations and line drawings. Shown below is just a little bit of what in the book. It covers headgear (helms and some hats) of every century since the Bronze Age, including the last one. It's an absolute treasure trove of pics of helmets of all eras.

The book is in outstanding shape, due to its cardboard slipcase (which could use some reinforcement around a couple edges). The dust jacket has the slightest shelfwear, but it basically flawless. The book is immaculate. Pictures are below.

Past Ebay auctions have seen this book go for $85 to over a $100, plus $20 shipping from Germany.

Asking $85 + shipping. PayPal preferred (please add 3%), money order accepted. Please email or PM with questions.

Price drop to $80 + s/h or best offer.

This one of the very few publications dedicated solely to the helmet and is absolutely chock full of high quality pics and drawings. It's one of my favorites.

I should also mention that its captions include length, width, height, and/or weight for the 315 items shown in it.
