The Littlecote House armory is the most important surviving armory of the English Civil Wars. This volume contains a history of the armory and an account of how the collection, threatened by dispersion at auction, was saved for the British nation in the 1980s. It includes a full catalogue of the contents of the armory, featuring the single most important group of mid-seventeenth century English military guns in existence and the largest surviving group of buff leather equipment in the world.

Featuring four hundred black-and-white illustrations and authored by international experts on European firearms and armor, Littlecote is an illuminating volume of the English Civil Wars, ideal for students and researchers of seventeenth-century Britain.
