FOR SALE: Armi Bianche Italiane, BOCCIA, Lionello G. ; COELHO, Eduardo T
Yes! I have another copy of this volume for sale. Armi Bianche Italiane is extremely rare and sought after by every serious collector of arms and armour. Any current owner of this book will tell you that it's the premier title available that covers Renaissance arms. (Though it covers arms from the 12th-18th centuries)
It's spectacular. I have another copy of this title in my own collection and consider it one of the finest books I own.

This book is out of print. It was printed in 1975, has had only one printing as far as I know, and was a short run. Few copies are out there, and even fewer that are available for sale. Condition is LIKE-NEW and is in the original shipping carton direct from the printer. It includes original dust cover which is also in excellent shape.
I know of none available right now on the 'net. The last two copies I found were $450 and $750 not including shipping from Europe.
Asking price: $565 (FIRM) shipped to CONUS
I prefer PayPal, but you'll have to add 3% to offset the costs.
