This listing is marked SOLD and is no longer available

Up for sale is one of the rare 1991 edition hardcover versions of Oakeshott's Records of the Medieval Sword. If you don't know the book, it's full of pictures and stats on swords from Oakeshott's typology, plus some swords that fall outside his system. If you're into swords, this book should be on your shelf, plan and simple. :) This title has been printed many times in paperback, but only once in hardcover. The paperback versions are notorious for falling apart; recent printings also sometimes have less crisp images.

This is a good example of the hardcover. It has minor shelfwear and some spotting/foxing to page edges and a few outer pages. It's in good shape for being nearly 30 years old.

These have been rare for a long time and typical prices are in the $250 and up range (used to be much more).

Asking $195 or best offer plus shipping.
