CLANDESTINE EDGED WEAPONS – By Dr. WILLIAM WINDRUM – 2001 – SCARCE TITLE
I purchased this years ago for resale in my shop and on my websites, but it arrived “damaged” with creases in the cover and a few pages. Not something I wanted to catalogue, so I set it aside only to be found now after many years in a pile. A HARD TO FIND title, and condition set aside, the buyer WANTS THE INFORMATION, and the faults are not serious, especially when I show you instead of simply cataloguing on my websites. Copies on-line are $145 and more.
Published by Phillips Publications, Williamstown, NY in 2001, 74 pages. There is a previous owner’s blindstamp on the title page, and the CREASES / FOLDS are on the front cover, and into about page 33 — BUT, not affecting readability or anything else – I am just fussy, and want happy customers – so sold “as is with all faults” and hopefully you can see the faults in the images below.
Contents include: Thumb Knives; Instep & Penetrating Knives; Clandestine Garrote Knives of World War II; 4 other types of clandestine knives; The Fair Sword, Fairbairn’s Improved Smatchet; The Fair Sword Revisited; and, The CIA’s “Air America” knife.
above you can see the creases across the front cover, and below on the spine
on these images of internal pages, I hope you can see the faint crease(s)
and, from the fore edge of the book block
and, the rear cover
PRICE – $40
