Firearms

of the Royal Armouries I

Pris: 150 kr
 

This volume is the first of three. It deals with firearms from the armouries of 17th and 18th century monarchs.

The information in this volume is based on more or less detailed inventories of the collections compiled continuously from 1654 onwards.

Cederström-Malmborg, Den äldre Livrustkammaren, like Brynolf Hellner´s Drottning Kristinas rustkammare, contains detailed scrutinies of these, the oldest inventories, compiled when the Royal Armoury was ordered at the time of the Queen´s abdication, and the account given in this volume is based on those large works.

Large Armoury collections come down to us from the later 17th century monarchs.
Accessions to the Royal Armoury also included the numerous weapons which the monarchs received as presents.
