Francis Grose was a famous 18th-century author who is best known for his ‘Antiquities of’ books. However, one of his least-known works is perhaps his most intriguing – ‘A Treatise on Ancient Armor and Weapons’. First published in 1786, this book describes medieval armor and weapons of knights including shields, helmets, axes, swords, and spears and how they are used. However, the most impressive aspect of this first edition is the inclusion of full-page engravings depicting these weapon and pieces of armor.
