Islamic and Oriental Arms and Armour
A Lifetime’s Passion
The book illustrates over 1,000 items of Islamic and Oriental arms and armour which represent the finest and most interesting examples originating from Islamic and Hindu cultures and beyond, including Russia, China, Tibet, Mongolia, Korea and South East Asia. All the items illustrated have passed through the hands of Robert Hales during the last 45 years.
Divided into four sections: daggers, swords, firearms, and armour, with the occasional transgression, the publication also includes a useful glossary of terms. The text is concise and descriptive as well as containing information that is being published for the first time.
NOTE: due to the book's weight and the shipping destination charges can vary.
