Die Schönsten Waffen und Rüstungen aus europäischen und amerikanischen Sammlungen
by Bruno Thomas, Ortwin Gamber and Hans Schedelmann
This very large volume (12.5" x 11" x 1.25") covers an important part of the history of western civilization: the arms and armour of the late Middle Ages through the eighteenth century. It attempts to focus on these items not as instruments of war, but as works of art. Each of the several hundred items discussed here has several paragraphs in German with a high-quality accompany photo(s). The color photo plates are separately glued onto the pages.
