This superbly illustrated book is the most comprehensive survey ever published of the weapons and accessories used in Islamic countries from the 17th until the 19th centuries, from Morocco to Indonesia. All the weapons, accessories and artwork presented are part of the author's collection and represent over thirty-five years of interest and collecting in this remarkable field.
