    Contents or index of Les Armes Blanches Militaires Françaises by Aries & Pétard?

    Does anyone have the table(s) of contents of Les Armes Blanches Militaires Françaises by Christian Aries & Michel Pétard? In total 30 volumes were published between 1966-1990 with description of about 466 French military swords and sabres.

    I would like to search for individual volumes as I'm only interested in official "sabres de troupe" manufactured in Klingenthal and not in the many variations of privately made officer's sabres as seen on the picture below.

    Many thanks!

    I think these books have all the swords listed in these older volumes.

    Hi Will,

    Indeed, could be possible, but also being out of print they cost nearly as much as an original Napoleonic sabre.

    I'm glad I bought the two cavalry sword books, does not seem so long ago but is.

    I found pictures of the index on a French forum. See http://www.passionmilitaria.com/t71835-aries for the full size pictures.
