(color frontispiece, 12 B&W plates) From the Preface, by no less a personage than Charles Ffoulkes, of the Office of the Armouries at the Tower of London: "The perusal of Mr. Clephan's work has shown me that it would have been impossible to undertake such a project without unattainable leisure, tireless energy, deep research and very real devotion to the subject. Mr. Clephan has dealt with the subject from a wide European point of view, and has amassed a vast amount of information from German sources which has, up until now, been denied to those unskilled in that language; and, with his copious notes and references, has made this material available for study, for which alone we must ever be deeply indebted to him." **** NOTE that additional charges will be requested for international shipping of this heavy book, or for Priority Mail service to U.S. destinations; if this concerns you, please contact us for a shipping quote before placing your order. ****
