"Sir Geoffrey Callendar, formerly Directorof the National Maritime Museum, invited Captain Bosanquet to list every w eapon in the collections, checking and counter-checking the attributions ofeach. The result is something far more than the ordinary dry museum catalo gue, of interest only to the expert. In describing the swords, he takes us behind the scenes and shows us how their history can often be traced and confirmed or denied. A most useful adjunct is the hitherto unpublished list of sword cutlers with their dates and places of business, which is of the greatest value in checking the date of a naval sword." -from the dj.
