Default MARKS OF ARMOURERS, SWORDSMITHS AND GUNSMITHS

Our fellow member corrado 26 was most kind to provide us with all 123 pages of the great work by Dudley Hawtrey Gyngell, Compilation of known Marks of Armourers, Swordsmiths and Gunsmiths.
So all book pages will be uploaded in the next 11 posts.
Just please wait till they are all in.
Thank you very much Udo, for sharing such precious material .

Wow! Thank you to you both for your hard work on this. This is very helpful.

There were a lot of pages to scan and I noticed some duplicates and some missing pages. Do you happen to have the following pages? (There also might be errors in my tracking of the missing!)

7
43-48
109

Thank you, Udo. A wealth of information.

Fernando: Will this become a sticky?

Let the thread stay in the "New Posts" front page until it goes down and out.
Then we move it to the "Classic Threads" sticky.

Could you please be more specific, Vihelmsson ?
Like, in which country are the duplicates and the missing ones ?

or ... Would you confirm the duplicates in Spain:
80-81-82-83-83-84-89-89-89-86-87-90-90-95-9693-94-101-10291-99-100-97-98-108.
Correct ?

Thank you Corrado and Fernando.

I am not concerned about the duplicates. I mentioned it in passing as a possible cause for the missing pages as someone who has had professionally to scan a lot of documents myself However, from my recollection, the duplicates were in Spain.

The following pages are still missing:
7
44
45
46
47

And, again, of course, I am very grateful for your posting this! I think I've bought more books over the past 6 months than arms.

In the interest of science and the arts, I combined and ordered the scanned images into a single pdf which is attached hereto.

Udo, I wanted to join in thanking you so much for taking the time and effort to add this most valuable resource here. As someone obsessed with blade markings for more years than I can accurately say, this reference has been a mainstay for me, and its great to see it made available for those out there either 'new to the game' or without this handy.

It has provided a most important benchmark in the study of markings, and important as we try to identify marks often seen on blades we encounter.

Vilhelmsson, thank you for your entry in streamlining this as well.

Very much appreciated guys!!!

I'm glad to have been able to help you Jim in your never ending search for knowledge. And my thanks too to Wilhelmsson for bringing the pages into the right order.
