Reviews - What do customers think about Arms and Armour: Traditional Weapons of India?
Gorgeous and Informative Oct 6, 2007
This is one of a few rare books that provides and excellent introduction to the edged weapons and armor of India, from Early and Medieval History to the last century. It is richly illustrated with both beautiful and detailed photographs of weapons and armor of the ages as well as line drawings and sketches of typical forms. Both these and the text are useful to collectors for identification purposes. Historical tales are woven through the discussion to provide context for the items discussed. I'm very pleased with this book as a collector and would also recommend it to anyone interested in museum quality photographs of the historical arms of India.
