Dont know if this has been posted before....I did a search first but I couldnt find any reference for this site. Some of you, like me, are on a tight budget and we all know how many books that we would lioke to have in our posession. The book "Medieval Costume, Armour and Weapons" by Eduard Wagner, Zoroslava Drobnã and Jan Durdik was first published in the Czech language in 1958. The drawings mostly are taken from 14th & 15th C illustrations from manuscripts in the Czech Library and are quite accurately rendered.
Lets face it, most of us are absorbed by some areas of interrest whithin a particular book more that others, but we must purchase the entire book to access the relevent chapters, especially with reference books. The scans of this book are all of a reasonabally good size and it allows us access the data that pertains to our particular interrest areas without having to spend up on the whole publication. Its also quite handy, for those of us without scanners to e-mail the material and to use it in postings, etc. There are some very interresting weapons and armour types in these pages....esp the variation in Bascinets, etc. I posted this in "Historical Arms Talk" because its full of arms and armour, although it has other sections also.

Anyway........for those of you who know about it, no harm done...to those who dont....Merry Christmas !!

I have moved this topic to the Off-topic Talk forum.

Please note the description for this forum:

"Discussions of general history and other miscellaneous topics relating to arms and armour that do not specifically fit our other forums"

Thank you.

Since the post is about a book, not about historic arms & armour, it's best placed in the Off-Topic forum.

Happy

ChadA

Thanks for this link, Merv. I can't read Czech, either, but the illustrations look good!

Nice book. Informative re. horse tack as well, but mainly is a presentation of period dress. Purchased a copy of it in Norway six years or so ago. Perhaps an on-line search of Norwegian booksellers might turn something up.
