The Crossbow, Payne-Gallwey
- I was at a local art supply store a short bit ago. In their book
section I found a copy of Sir Ralph Payne-Gallwey's book; The
crossbow, mediaeval and modern, military and sporting, its
construction, history & management with a treatise on balista and
catapult of the ancients, and an appendix on the catapult, balista &
the Turkish bow.
The book appears to be new with dustjacket and sports an ISBN number
of 0-946323-14-3, selling price is $22.48; publisher is The Holland
Press. I didn't write down which edition this was but I think it was
A quick search on Amazon.com shows this edition to only be available
as used through them. Amazon's used sources list it from $25 to $45.
I don't personally shoot crossbows but I thought someone here may be
interested in the book.
The store is Art Supply Warehouse, 6672 Westminster Blvd. Westminster
