The Rapier and the Smallsword, 1460-1820 - By A.V.B. Norman
Review by Tom Leoni. (21-Mar-05)
When I received this book as a gift, I knew that it would become one of my all-time
favorites. This large, 464-page, heavily-illustrated tome takes the reader on a
historical tour of the swords we know as rapiers and smallswords from the late 15th
Century to the end of the Napoleonic era.
