Default New Book "Precious Indian Weapons from the al-Sabah Collection"

I have got yesterday a new book on Indian weapons: "Precious Indian Weapons from the al-Sabah Collection". I haven't read the text yet, but it features around 200 stunning daggers and swords from India on 500 pages. The picture quality is simply amazing!

Amazon as well as the publishers ( Thames and Hudson) both state its release date as September 12, 2017.
Where did you get yours and how much did you pay?

Thank you Tatyana for mentioning this book.
For all interested in Indian arms this is a must. There are a lot of weapons studded with stones, which many does not fancy, but there are also a lot of other weapons, and the texts are really interesting, and not only four lines.
I will very much recommend this book.

I contacted several British sellers: none of them are willing to send it to the US. Even more astonishing, the one who has this book in New York (!!!) has a note that the book can't be sent to the US.
Do they think that Sir William Howe still controls New York City for the Crown?
I think it is about time for Washington to cross the blasted Delaware!

Please, if anyone here knows how to get this book to Michigan ( we are still not among the 13 Colonies), let me know:-)))
