Description

* A handsomely illustrated guide to the world of the Scottish sword The Scottish sword has played an important role in the military history of Scotland, and this new book presents an accessible and highly visual chronicle of that role from the 17th through the 20th centuries. With more than 1,200 gorgeous, colour photographs and authentic period illustrations, The Scottish Sword pays tribute to the swords most associated with the Highland soldier, including: two-handed swords, English basket hilts, Jacobite basket hilts, regulation basket hilts, and non-regulation swords. The book also features a chapter on sword makers and retailers who supplied the swords and a comprehensive bibliography detailing the most informative books on the subject round out this handsome compilation. About the Author Harvey J. S. Withers has been both collecting, dealing and writing about antique swords for a number of years and has a particular interest in British military swords. This was a passion that was begun in childhood and continues to this day. Born in Birmingham, England he is also the author of a series of illustrated books detailing the history of military swords and edged weapons. He currently lives in the United Kingdom and is married with a daughter.
