SECOND, and BEST EDITION of this FAMOUS WORK ON ANCIENT ARMOR, CORRECTED AND ENLARGED by the Author with the aid of Sir Walter Scott, Francis Douce, and others. Many of the embellishments are derived from representations of Chivalry and Tournaments found in National documents and other papers of importance, all bearing upon the general events of history, and justifying in every particular Sir Walter's designation of this superb production as, "The Incomparable Armoury."

This copy contains a handsome Initial Letter to each chapter, illuminated with gold and colors in imitation of the ancient MSS., etc., from which the plates were designed.

A prominent English writer [Lord Jefferys, probably] in the course of a eulogistic review of these volumes, spoke as follows: "No previous work can be compared in point of extent, arrangement, science, or utility. with the one now in question. First, It for the first time supplies to our schools of art correct and ascertained data for costume; Second, It affords a most conclusive elucidation of a great number of passages in our great dramatic poets; Third, It throws a flood of light upon the manners, usages, and sports of our ancestors. And, Lastly, It removes a vast number of traditions, which have been transmitted through the lapse of four or five hundred years."
