About this title

Synopsis:

Hunting Weapons is the first book on its subject in English. It deals mainly with the different classes of weapons used in sport - swords, spears, crossbows, guns and rifles - from the Middle Ages until the present day. Each category of weapon is dealt with in chronological order so that the collector can identify his own pieces and gain knowledge of the reasons for their design. The collector of swords will find a surprising range of weapons illustrated, from the knight's sword of the 15th century to the highly decorated hangers of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Collectors of firearms will meet with some rare and unusual specimens.

Many fine photographs show the great artistry which went into the making of weapons for princes and the members of their courts. Historical notes provide authentic background, and line illustrations show unusual, often bizarre, methods of hunting.

Includes 432 pages plus unnumbered pages of photographs.
