7 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Douglas Confere on March 28, 2004
Format: Hardcover
This book has a lot of later period armour made for parades and other ceremonies. Very little of the armour in this book is functional combat grade armour. It is of minimal use to the reproducer of armour, but it is still worth having. It is rich with text on each suit, and the pictures are superb.
If you want to make reference to pictures of armour for reproduction purposes, this book will be very minimally useful to you.
If you want to do research on ceremonial armour, this is for you.

Format: Hardcover
This book is an oasis of information on Heroic armor as it was well researched from 14th - 16th century documents, statues, and paintings. Including a collection of photographs of helmets, shields, breast plates, and all things concerning armor especially concerning the Filippo Negroli workshop and his contemporaries.
