Hunting Weapons from the Middle Ages to the Twentieth Century: With 288 Illustrations

Hunting Weapons from the Middle Ages to the Twentieth Century: With 288 Illustrations Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Detailed, comprehensive account of swords, knives and bayonets, staff weapons, bows, crossbows, guns and other miscellaneous arms — dating from the Middle Ages to modern times. Over 280 contemporary illustrations catalog the spear of a Roman hunter, a medieval broad arrow, a harpoon gun fired by whalers, and much else.

Book News Annotation:

Primarily for collectors, Blackmore describes as many as possible of the multitude of weapons used in the hunt. Insisting on encompassing some ignored by many writers, he includes the Fan crossbow along with standard kinds, the throwing weapons of the aborigines as well as Spanish darts, and other slings along with the Medieval English ones. He does however, focus heavily on Medieval to modern times, mentioning only briefly ancient precursors at the beginning of each chapter. The 1971 edition was published by Barrie and Jenkins, London; the reprint is unabridged except that all 151 original plates are grouped together.
