A renowned nineteenth-century historian and specialist on the Middle Ages, J.H. Hefner-Alteneck spent much of his life observing the influence of art on many aspects of human life, including weaponry. His illustrations for this handsome archive--drawn with incredible exactitude--depict a wide array of medieval weapons and armor dating from the early ninth century to the mid-1700s. Adapted primarily from decorative ornamentation on burial monuments and manuscripts, hundreds of finely executed images depict authentic shields, swords, crossbows, helmets, and highly ornate suits of body armor for knights and their steeds. Newly translated descriptive notes, extracted from the original German text, identify the subjects. First published more than 100 years ago, this meticulously rendered study remains an invaluable source of permission-free illustrations for artists and designers and an indispensable reference for scholars, collectors, and hobbyists

"Printed treasure trove: Eight centuries of decorative arts. When Kunstwerke und Gerathschaften des Mittelalters und der Renaissance (1852 1863) was published, what purchasers in fact bought was a printed museum. With 216 hand-colored copperplate engravings, the publication gives a comprehensive overview of applied arts in Europe from the 9th to the 16th centuries, spanning furniture, metalwork, jewelry, tapestries, and bookbinding. The book's lead editor was well placed to select masterpieces from the Middle Ages through to the Renaissance from both public and private collections. Jakob Heinrich von Hefner-Alteneck (1811 1903), was head of the Royal Cabinet of Prints and Drawings in Munich and later director of the Bavarian National Museum. The signatures on the plates of Kunstwerke und Gerathschaften show that he was also the work s main draftsman. As much an artwork in itself as a collection of applied arts over eight centuries, this exquisite catalog is now revived in a compact TASCHEN edition. From delicate jewelry to the most elaborate goblet, it offers the contemporary reader both a record and a sourcebook for all that can be achieved by the human hand and creative imagination."--Publisher's description
