George Cameron Stones' book is widely considered to be the definitive work on the subject of arms and armor. "A Glossary of the Construction, Decoration and Use of Arms and Armor in All Countries and in All Times" is an indispensable resource and reference tool for anyone interested in arms and armor. Originally published in 1934, it remains an essential guide to the field. To describe the worldwide range and variety of weaponry, Stone drew upon the more than 4,000 items in his private collection of Eastern arms and armor, as well as the European arms collection of New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and a variety of other sources.
