    I am glad and happy for you. You've worked very hard and myself and many others have benefited from your hard work, and I very much look forward to learning more about these weapons and their history from your book.
    Of course I would like you to sign it my friend.

    Thankyou for all your efforts and hard work

    Update on my book

    Dear friends,

    Finally, I handed in the last version of the draft of my book and the pictures and sketches/ drawings that accompany the text (I have been providing the publishing house with pictures and sketches over the last weeks already). Just I wanted to let you know that the text will be edited, the pictures have been optimized and the sketches/ drawings have been digitally worked on.

    From today, I will be concentrating on the cataolgue. We are getting closer to the publication of the book.

    Regards

    Manoucher

    Wonderful!!!!!!

    I am also wainting in line for my copy. Bravo and thank you so much for the hard work and devotion you have put into this. I am sure it will be a great success for you and a wonderful resource for all of us.

    Has there been any indication of the publication price of the book yet? I need to put it into my budget :-D

    Excellent job Manoucher, I can't wait for the book!
    Click on my website to see my gallery of blades that have a recurve. I've also got a gallery of historical Gunblades in there too.

    Thank you very much for your encouraging words Anthony. Unfortunately I do not know how much the price will be. This a a huge volume with thousands of pictures and primary sources. I will report as soon as I have the information.

    Thanks again my friend.

    Fantastic!

    I hadn't checked this thread in a long time and nearly lept from my chair with all this good news. Congratulations and well done Manoucher! If I managed to fit the new three-volume english Shahnameh into my budget, I can surely purchase this book of yours.

    I only wish that somebody would undertake a similar endeavor for the arms of every culture. Many nations have just as rich a martial heritage as Iran, but few have been quite as ignored. The history of Persia is a relatively obscure thing here in America (I do not kid you when I say that most Americans don't even know that Persia and Iran are the same place). Yet, now there is one more cause for hope.

    I offer you sincere thanks, Manoucher, there are far too few true scholars in the world.

    UPdate

    Dear friends,

    Just for your information, I sent the first part of the cataolgue on copper, bronze, gold, iron and steel swords to the Publishing House. It includes many high quality museum pieces from 11 museums in Iran and few top-notch items from private collections. I also handed in the text of the catalogue on this part.

    The publishing house is going to optimize the pictures.

    The text editing is already in the process and next week I will receive the first chapters of the book for the review. This work requires lots of input and energy, really amazing.

    Regards

    Manoucher

    All the Best

    Thank you Jeff. Soon the publishing house will introduce the book on its website. There will be an introduction on the book's contents and as well some very nice pictures of some selected items in the book. They will offer the book on their site so that you could order it directly there. Other vendors will also be considered, we will think aout all possibilities.

    I forgot to mention that at the moment I am working on the catalogue parts and numbering the pictures of kards, pish Qabz, Khanjar, Separ, Tabar, Gorz, Neyze, Zereh va Joshan, Qame and Qaddare. Soon I will deliver them and then the reviewing starts. I am really exhausted. This has been going for years!

    The digitial optimizations of my drawing look excellent. I received some samples yesterday.

    Thanks again for your interest Jeff.

    Regards

    Manoucher

    I forgot to mention that I will present my book in October in the International Book Fair in Frankfurt. We will also distribute a brochure with nice pictures from my book there. The book will be launched in December this year.
