This is a 1976 catalogue by Schobel and Karpinski of "princely arms and armour from the Dresden Historic Museum." It full title is Prunkwaffen & Rüstungen aus dem Historischen Museum, Dresden. It's 257 pages long and has many color and B&W photos, almost always full-page. Armour, swords, firearms, and impact weapons are covered, including many fantastic examples from the 16th century. The text is in German. Some of its items include:

It's a nice catalogue and often sells for $60+. Asking $50 + shipping. Money order accepted, PayPal preferred (please add 3%). I'll also consider trades for book not already on my reading list.

Are there any Katzbalgers illustrated in this tome?

Also, what kinds of impact weapons are there?

Thx for your time!

Charles,
There are about a half dozen long polearms, plus about a half-dozen short impact weapons, including at least one axe combined with a pistol. In a quick flip-though, I came across a single Katzbalger.

I realize I neglected to mention the book's condition. The book itself is in fine shape: the binding is tight, the pages undamaged as far as I could tell, and no noteworthy bumps or gouges are on the cloth hardcover or its gilt letters/design. The dust jacket has that one chunk missing, which measures 1 3/8 inches across, and has minor shelf wear. It's protected now by a clear dust jacket protector which should keep it from seeing further harm. For a book published in 1976 it's in pretty darn good shape.

As a reminder, trade offers are welcomed.

Price drop to $45 + shipping.

The Dresden collection has many fine items in it. If I didn't have another version of this book, I wouldn't be letting go of it. Happy
