I was going through the photos in the Wallace Collection website and thought you would like to see some of them. I wish there were more photos showing different aspects of the swords.

The new Wallace Collection book and digital USB drive, Masterpieces of European Arms and Armour in the Wallace Collection and Complete Digital Catalogue of European Arms and Armour shows these swords and all the others with multiple angles and details! The project appears to have been a monumental undertaking that resulted in a breathtaking final presentation.

Thanks to Roger for sharing the photos and Nathan for sharing the link! I think I know what book I'm going to be suggesting for my birthday present soon... Laughing Out Loud

Great to see pictures of the Wallace Collection blades when they aren't obscured behind glass.
