Hi Julien,

(expensive) book,
Not expensive if you buy a reprint (around 50 euros)

Is it a really good books ?
Excellent
Does it have photography of makers marks ?
Yes but not a lot
Do you recommand to get it in the library?
It depends what you are looking for

It's an excellent piece of scholarship, however you won't find it particularly useful unless you can already read signatures.

First of all, thanks to you both, your response were perfectly what i wa looking for.
(a little joke for Kubur, i like my books as i like my sword... original. Hahaha. I think, i'm a sword, but also a book collector ).

Actually, i was thinking it was an identification key of Islamic armourers, based on photography of marks.
Sadly, i can't read all thoses marks, so maybe it's not worth to buy it for now.
Nevertheless, do you know if there is an existant books about identification of islamic armourers marks on blades, based on photography ?
Thanks a lot,
Julien
