Eduard Wagner - 'European weapons and warfare 1618-48'


This is a book from the old days that some of you might remember - loads of really well drawn images showing aspects of the Thirty Years War - haven't got a copy anymore but if any of you have a pic I can put up - it was a staple of that era - the 80s...what a lovely book it was. The English edition had a Wouwerman picture on the front and was published by Octopus.

Wagner is good, but he put paintings of weapons into the book without relation to date/year and place, where he saw it.
Remember, that TYW is not compact age, but is compound by places (states), time and caste of people.
