British Military Pistols and Associated Edged Weapons 1603-1887 by Robert Brooker (Jr)
Hardback with dustjacket, 432 pages, 8.5” x 12”, illustrated throughout with colour photos. In 1978 Bob Brooker wrote a much prized book on British military pistols which has been long out of print and fetching extraordinary high prices. This is an extensive revision of that book, but it is three times the length and in full colour instead of black & white. It contains significant new material, including the related edged weapons plus valuable information from the Royal Armouries on early firearms and later extremely rare models.
This is an absolute must for every arms library.
