Ancient Armour and Arms

In England and in Europe

This is a collection of 12 classic books (in PDF format) on The History and Art Of Ancient Armour and Arms in England and in Europe. Each PDF Reprint is an electronic facsimile version of the actual book published in around 1900s.

PDF Reprint #1

97 Pages

Armour in England

From the Earliest Times to the Reign of James the First

"It is the nature of islands to exhibit some peculiarities in their fauna and flora, and this insularity is no less pronounced in the manners and customs of the human beings inhabiting them. Thus even the stone implements of Britain of remote prehistoric days can readily be distinguished by the expert; and we have the authority of Sir John Evans for regarding our types of bronze celts and weapons as both peculiar and indigenous."

PDF Reprint #2

103 Pages

Armour & Weapons

"Writers on Arms and Armour have approached the subject from many points of view, but, as all students know, their works are generally so large in size, or, what is more essential, in price, that for many who do not have access to large libraries it is impossible to learn much that is required. Then again, the papers of the Proceedings of the various Antiquarian and Archaeological Societies are in all cases very scattered and, in some cases, unattainable, owing to their being out of print."

PDF Reprint #3

209 Pages

A Treatise on Ancient Armour and Weapons

"Having in the course of my researches into the military antiquities of this country, in vain sought for some treatise exhibiting a series of authentic delineations, and descriptions of the different kinds of armour and weapons used by our ancestors; I conceived that a work of that kind would not be an unacceptable addition to the antiquarian and military libraries, and might also be useful to sculptors, painters, and designers, and enable them to avoid those anachronisms and violations of the coustume, which we too often meet with in works otherwise excellently performed."

PDF Reprint #4

436 Pages

British and Foreign Arms & Armour

"The study of Arms and Armour is one of absorbing interest to a large and ever increasing number of the community, inasmuch as it appeals in a marked degree to the student of history, the antiquarian, and to those who work in the realms of art. To the first it appeals as a concrete reminder of the struggles of nations for liberty, independence, power, or conquest; to the second it breathes of the age in which it saw the light with all the feeling and tone which characterised it; to the third it is a source of delight by the consummate beauty of its form or the exquisite details of its adornment."

PDF Reprint #5

94 Pages

Foreign Armour in England

"A former monograph, Armour in England, treated of weapons and armour made either in this country or connected historically with English wearers. The more extensive field of foreign armour brought into England by wealthy and enthusiastic collectors is now embraced. The enthusiasm felt for armour is not surprising; its interest is so many-sided. Not only are collectors fascinated by it, but students of history, artists, and antiquaries."

PDF Reprint #6

399 Pages

Ancient Armour and Weapons in Europe

"With the nations of the Stone Period and the Bronze Period we do not purpose to occupy ourselves; not that the relics of their times are of an inferior interest, but that, in commencing with the days of the iron-workers, which for general purposes we assume to be identical with the retirement of the Romans beyond the Alps, and the domination of the northern nations in the centre and west of Europe, we feel that we have a task before us already much greater than we can hope to fulfil, either to the satisfaction of our readers, or our own."

PDF Reprint #7

196 Pages

A Handbook of Pictorial History

"It has been felt that in the study of English History, to the ordinary student and teacher, there are great difficulties in the way of consulting the numerous standard and other excellent works, on the subjects dealt with in this volume. Many have not sufficient leisure, and many are unable to make use of the facilities for study and research offered by our great national and provincial libraries and museums. And, to most, the prohibitive cost of a representative collection of these standard works is an effectual bar to the acquisition of a personal collection."

A Record of

European Armour and Arms

Through Seven Centuries


The Complete Set of 5 Volumes

"This book does not pretend to open up a new road to the student of arms and armour, but it is a faithful record of my observations and notes since boyhood. My evidence confirms the accepted theories of the great scholars who preceded me. Herein I trust lies its interest and value for the reader.

I feel, therefore, that my homage is first due to the memory of Sir Samuel Rush Meyrick, that pioneer of all who have been learned in the study of the harness of war, and after him I think gratefully of those who followed in his footsteps. My book owes much to their research, although of necessity it covers a wider field, in view of the work of archaeologists during the last forty years.

At least I may claim for my pictures that they are all drawings or photographs of genuine pieces. I say frankly that my long experience in handling the work of the old armourers has made me bold to speak with some authority on what my eyes and fingers have learned about the technical aspect of ancient armour and weapons, the subject of this book."
