Brimming with 98 full-color illuminated engravings, here is an arresting survey of armor and weaponry spanning the ninth to fifteenth centuries. From Richard the Lionheart in full battle dress to the equipage of anonymous knights, Meyrick's splendid panorama of arms and armor from the Middle Ages illustrates ancient military regalia in all its forms. Crisp and highly detailed depictions of shields, swords, crossbows, helmets, lances, and ornate suits of body armor for knights and their steeds are royalty-free and ready to use in a wealth of art, craft, and design projects.
