The authoratative natureMoreCollectors, dealers and museum officials have long felt the need for a cemprehensive, well illustrated and up-to-date encyclopaedia of arms and armour. With this book the gap in arms literature has been definitively filled. The authoratative nature of the treatment is guaranteed by the standing of the general editors, Claude Blair (Keeper of the Department of Metalwork at the Victoria and Albert Museum) and Leonid Tarassuk (formerly of the Hermitage Museum and now in the Department of Arms and Armour at the Metropolitan Museum). Information about individual contributors, each of whom writes on his own area of specialised study, can be found on the back flap of the book jacket.The works coverage is world wide and so includes the arms and armaments of the Orient as well as those of Europe and America.

The chronological span stretches from the prehistoric and classical times to the present day. Individual entries range from crossbows, swords, axes and daggers to the sporting and military firearms of the present century, and there is full consideration of armour, whether medieval, renaissance or in its contemporary role as protection for tanks and self-propelled guns. the detailed and technically exact illustrations have almost all been specifically prepared. Finally, a very complete Bibliography mentions every general work on the subject, in whatever language, and may be found on swords, daggers and other armes blanches, on firearms, on artillery and on Oriental arms.
