Default Robert Held anthologies

The late Mr Held, an expat American scholar who resided in Italy, wrote two remarkable anthologies containing articles on a variety of arms by a number of European and British authors, the former all translated into English. Too many articles to list, but the books are:

Arms and Armor Annual Vol I (the only volume!) 1973

Art, Arms, and Armour: An international anthology Vol I, 1979 -- intended as a much more ambitious replacement (twice as large too) for the above. This book has a number of articles on important Italian firearms by a number of experts such as Marco Morin, Nolfo di Carpegna, etc. all in English translations by the editor.
