Myth and Reality 1450-1650

This scholarly significant, popularly written, and beautifully illustrated work explores the multiple rolls of arms and armor in the Renaissance and Baroque societies. During the period between 1450-1650, gunpowder weapons and new military technologies gradually extinguished the need for knights in shining armor on the battlefield. In this period, unsurpassed production of elaborate, richly decorated, and superbly crafted suits of armor became a symbol of status and was worn increasingly for ceremonial purposes and adopted into everyday life and dress.

Format: Hardcover.   Dimensions: 11.5" x 10.75"   Pages: 84   Illustrations: 111
