A Glossary of the Construction, Decoration and Use of ARMS AND ARMOR in All Countries and in All Times

George Cameron Stone

 

 

 

A Glossary of Arms and Armor, by George Cameron Stone.This book has been first published in 1934, by the collector George Cameron Stone. During his whole life of travels, he made researches, on all sorts of weaponries and in countries such as the Middle East, India, Tibet, Southeast Asia, Korea, Japan, China, Australia, Pacific Islands, Europe, Americas.

This book is therefor both of interest for all the weapons enlisted, as well as of how they were seen at that time. The bad point is, the book is made like a dictionary, sorted by names. So you won't know easily all the arms for such and such country, until you browsed it long enough. Which is finally a good point!

 

 

A lot of pictures taken from this book can be seen here.
