in the collection of Her Majesty The Queen: European Armour

Ian Eaves and A. V. B. Norman

 528 pages

Quite apart from the texts, which are as uncompromisingly extensive, thorough and detailed as anyone could hope for, Arms and Armour in the Collection of Her Majesty The Queen: European Armour is gorgeous visually.
