Just a heads up! I just noticed this paperback reprint of The Rapier and Small-sword 1460-1820 is on pre-release at Amazon.co.uk:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/1905074999

and I thought some of you chaps may fancy a copy that costs less than an arm and a leg.

Good head's up. The reprints aren't great in terms of quality for the plates but this particular title has a tremendous amount of info in text/illustration format that translate well as a copy. This facsimile is produced by Ken Trotman Publishing and is amongst many other such reprints. Check 'em out.

Well if only they had done this a few months earlier, I might have saved some cash Worried

But good news anyway! That way more sword enthusiasts will be able to get this reference book...

After all, information wants to be reasonably priced Wink

I actually picked up an excellent hardcover reprint from a publishing company that will do print on demand not too long ago (though if they don't have it in stock you may have to wait for a little bit so its best to go in with friends). I happened to luck out and they had one in stock so I had it by the end of the week. I don't know about advertising here but if someone wants to pm me I'm more than happy to share. The reprinted plates don't look too bad at all in my copy.
