    If anyone can suggest any books with extensive pictures for my reference library, feel free to let me know. I'm always hunting for some more books to add to my collection. I just picked up Bashford Deans Catalogue of European Daggers in its unbound condition (coincidentally I have its companion book Catalogue of European Court Swords and Hunting Swords in the same condition) and am eager to have it professionally bound into a matching set. Took me six years of hunting to finally get a copy.
    "When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall, and he looks ya crooked in the eye and he asks ya if you've paid your dues, well you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that: "Have ya paid your dues, Jack?.....Yessir, the check is in the mail."

    Woot originated as a hacker term for root (or administrative) access to a computer. However, with the term as coincides with the gamer term, "w00t". "w00t" was originally an trunicated expression common among players of Dungeons and Dragons tabletop role-playing game for "Wow, loot!" Thus the term passed into the net-culture where it thrived in video game communities and lost its original meaning and is used simply as a term of excitement

    I have on-line put an alphabetically regular list of German and international books in August, 2009. She shows all books (249 piece at the moment) in the "deutsches-blankwaffenforum" were introduced.
    However, I do not know whether I here them may point, because the List is from a another (my) forum. In this list you can see the photos the book covers if one clicks on a button beside the titles, but in addition one must be registered there.

    Every book is described in the forum, indeed, in German. However, a translation should be no problem. There are programs for it.

    What does mean the administration?

    I hope, you can read my English.
    I must use partially a translater .

    I don't know if this book has been recommended elsewhere in the forums, but the following is a magnificent, huge work on Persian weapons. Hundreds of full-colour photographs. Text is in English.

    I have just received this book from a Spanish dealer, and gave it a good browse.

    This is a massive piece of work, a good 3 kilos. If someone wants just one comprehensive book on Spanish swords, this would more than satisfy. Author covers several hundred of Spanish swords, sabers and rapiers from the 1500s to-date.
    Not an in-depth study of Spanish sword-making, but a chronological and typological index, well-photographed, with sufficiently-brief annotations for each piece exhibited. Each page features one sword.
    Pricey at about $200. Text in Spanish. At this price level, a bi-lingual Spanish-English edition would be more attractive for the readers; still I must recommend this book as a good compendious guide to Spanish swords.

    No problems, it happens to us all!

    There are also, for those interested the Wilkinson Gun/Pistol/Revolver numbers from 1807 to 1906!

    Just a heads up--Harvey Withers has updated British Military Swords, 1796 - 1912 :The Regulation Patterns: An Illustrated Price Guide for Collectors and it is available for pre-order. If memory serves, the original edition was considerably more expensive.

    Would anybody know when Harvey's updated British Military Swords, 1796 - 1912 is going to be published?

  21. #46

    British military swords 1786-1912


    I guess that I am the best person to answer this question!

    Had hoped to have it out for the end of August but software niggles (book was produced in 2003 with Microsoft Publisher and the newer version does not like it at all!) have put that back - am working hard at the moment to get it to printers this month but don't worry, it is definitely is coming out.

    Best regards,

    Harvey Withers

    Spanish books

    Here you have some spanish references, aside Espadas Españolas of Vicente Toledo. I must say this one is a definitely reference book (althoug I must reckon a bit expensive...).
    Dimitry, my friend, personally I have had to adapt to english, french, italian and german books, so I don´t know why this one should be a bi-lingual edition. I understand your point of view nevertheless...because this kind of words should have international pretensions.
