This book, Armi Bianche Italiane, is extremely rare and sought after by every serious collector of arms and armour. Any current owner of this book will tell you that it's the premier title available that covers Renaissance arms. (Though it covers arms from the 12th-18th centuries)
It's spectacular. I have two copies of this title in my own collection and have secured this nearly mint third copy that I'm putting up for sale.

I am asking $435 for my copy.
