I am interested in the following two books:

Arms and Armour of Knights and Landsknechts in the Netherlands Army Museum by Jan Piet Puype and Harm Stevens

MASTERPIECES OF EUROPEAN ARMS AND ARMOUR IN THE WALLACE COLLECTION by Tobias Capwell and David Edge

I would appreciate feedback from anyone that owns either and/or both books as to if they are worth purchasing.

They're on my reading list. I recommended and rated them both.

Arms and Armour of Knights and Landsknechts in the Netherlands Army Museum
by Jan Piet Puype, Harm Stevens

Masterpieces Of European Arms And Armour In The Wallace Collection And Complete Digital Catalogue Of European Arms And Armour
by Sir James Mann, Tobias Capwell

(My seriously high rating is based on the combined book and digital portion of this amazing piece. The book itself is worth the purchase price, but is not nearly as impressive)

Thank you Nathan.I actually did not know that it came w/digital version.I was just looking at the paperback.I was curious because most of Tobias' other works are very general...pretty pics but not much detail.
