Edged Weapons by John Wilkinson-Latham
Book DescriptionThis book traces the development of cutting, thrusting and slashing weapons in all their forms - sword, knife, dagger, arrow, spear, axe, halberd, pike, etc. - from the primitive flints of the Stone Age, through the ancient and medieval periods, to the ornate duelling weapons of the eighteenth century and the elaborate presentation swords of the twentieth century. Also included are sections on the weapons of Japan and of countries where edged weapons have only more recently given way to the gun. Prominence is given to those weapons that are most likely to be encountered in antique shops or even in the attic, and each section is packed with line illustrations and photographs.
