Neil,

How many photographs are there of swords in the book? You mention "illustrations" but not photos.

There are photos of approx. 89 actual two-handed swords, several in group shots but clearly individual, plus a few multi-group photos from museums. The other illustrations are from manuscripts, fight manuals, painting, sculpture, woodcuts etc. Hope this helps.

I just want to add that initially I found the publisher's site, and looked for a sample on there. I did not find it, and was just about to ask for one on here!

...You can find a sample of the book on Amazon. I am intrigued, and will consider picking it up if I can budget it in any time soon.
