By Eric Valentine, First Edition, 1968, The Arms and Armour Press, London. Small but very important and hard to find work entirely devoted to European 16th/17th Century rapiers. Hardcover 5 3/4" x 8 3/4", 74 pages, profusely illustrated with black and white photos of rapiers, daggers and components, each giving dimensions, description and provenance. Includes brief history and notes on authenticating, collecting and caring for rapiers. The most important book of its kind ever published about rapiers. Long out of print, with some copies bringing up to $800, this book is an absolute must for any collector of European rapiers. Where most references have maybe 10% useable information, this book is packed cover to cover with photos and valuable information not found in any other source. Very good ex-libris copy with dust jacket and plastic cover.
