Sorry, this item has sold.

This is a near fine (almost like new) large paperback. 2000 Dover Publications. This copy is crisp and clean inside and out. The pages are crisp, clean and free of markings. The binding is tight and straight. NO creasing along spine. The cover is clean and shiny with only a hint of shelf wear at corners. Large paperback, Imperial octavo size or 8" x 11" with 335 pages.

Widely regarded as the best single-volume survey of the subject, this detailed, carefully documented and well-written work traces the evolution of arms and armor in Colonial America over the course of more than 250 years - from heavy suits of armor, swords, crossbows, muskets, pistols, powder horns, and more - it is a meticulous coverage. It also presents a picture of military life during the age of colonization and exploration, the French Wars and the American Revolution. More than 300 illustrations highlight the text along with an appendix providing information on the equipment owned by the average citizen or soldier.
