THE
BRITISH CAVALRY SWORD
1788 – 1912

Some New Perspectives

Richard Dellar

DESCRIPTION

It is now more than 38 years since the publication of Brian Robson’s original edition of Swords of the British Army, the Regulation Patterns 1788-1912. ‘Robson’ was an inspiration to many and remains the primary reference source for British military swords until the present day. However, since the publication of ‘Robson’ in 1975 knowledge of the subject has inevitably increased. This new book on British Cavalry Swords seeks to update and complement ‘Robson’, providing new detail and ideas relating to regulation patterns and introducing many previously unpublished variants. The book also seeks to place the British Cavalry Sword within its historical context and contains a series of vignettes relating to the people who carried the swords and the cutlers who made them. The book draws upon the knowledge of many specialists and collectors; many of the swords illustrated are in private collections and are illustrated for the first time.


‘The best book on British military swords since Robson … people will be looking it up in ‘Dellar’ for years to come’

Chris Allen, Bonhams

‘A perfectly researched work with much needed additions to our knowledge and destined to become the standard reference book on the subject joining the pioneer authors, Ffoulkes and Hopkinson, John Wilkinson-Latham and Brian Robson.’

Robert Wilkinson-Latham
