Description

Originally published in 1901. A well illustrated description of the various swords used in civilized Europe during the last five centuries, and of single combats which have been fought with them. Contents include: The Age of Chivalry - Period of the Rapier - Period of Transition - Prize Players and Prize Fighters - The Nineteenth Century etc. Many of the earliest military books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing many of these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
