Excerpt from British and Foreign Arms and Armour

Charles Boutell by his translation of Lacombe did much to foster the study, but it was from a French point of view, and his epitome of English armour and arms, though excellent in its way, is only superficial, and a digest Of his great works on Monumental Brasses. In the latter he probably did more to further the study than any preceding author; he was the first to rationally systematise the arrangement of armour in periods in consonance with the salient features it possessed, thus breaking through the previous methods of classifying it by reigns, which was Obviously absurd, or by centuries, which was equally ridiculous. I have followed his method with but little variation in the pages of this book, inasmuch as no better arrangement is extant. It is a matter for great pride to myself that such standard works should have emanated from a former Hon. Secretary of the St. Albans and Herts Architectural and Archaeo logical Society, and if the present volume should in any degree further the good work of my predecessor it will have achieved the height of my ambition. Hewitt is de lightful reading, but his arrangement is unsystematic and involved; to the advanced student, however, he is invalu able. Thc later works of Demmin, Clephan, Gardner, &c., are masterly monographs upon the subject, but hopelessly out Of place in the hands of a beginner.
