Book Description: 

Bayonets of the World - Complete Edition. COMPLETE EDITION.

This is the 2009 FIRST EDITION (BRAND NEW COPIES) with cloth hard cover binding, dust cover, premium stock, etc. I have THREE copies remaining from my 2009 purchase. Don't miss out. The 2018 REPRINT is nice but is "Perfect Bound" (cheap), no dust cover and uses cheaper paper stock.

The STANDARD WORK on the World's Bayonets originally published in the 1970's / Paul Kiesling / 4 volumes. Now in ONE VOLUME. This IS the "Standard Reference" of bayonet collectors. If you collect bayonets and want the "Bayonet Bible" this is it! With out a doubt, the most complete book on bayonets ever published. Definitive/comprehensive worldwide coverage from the 1600's to the present. Detailed line drawings and information on over 1000 bayonets, classified by country. HUGE, heavy, oversize, 670 pages / thousands of illustrations. Published in the Netherlands. Only 1,000 printed in English. Less than 600 were imported into the U.S. and the importer (Mowbray Publishers) sold-out!!! I bought 100 but eventually sold out as well. Now OUT OF PRINT and no longer available.

Note: Don't miss this - I have (3) copies left from the 100 I purchased from Mowbray way back in 2009 - BRAND NEW - PERFECT!!!
