Mayhap Master Glendour can be of assistance... He's always been very helpful
to me: www.talonarmory.com is the website & he has an email address there...

Otherwise, there is a guy who will be here in October for the Wannamaker
arms show who has some *amazing* books (unfortunately at *amazing* prices as
well) on armor and weapons...

You might try our own local Tristan as well...

Subject: [Northkeep] research help request

I've been asked by a gentleman (who's been very helpful to me -- he's the
one who sent me the russian books) if I have any information on Italian
Armor.  Honestly the answer is "no, I don't".  I know virtually nothing
relevant about armor production (beyond some basics here and there).
However, we have people here who might know something.

I would be really grateful if anyone has any thoughts, suggestions, hints,
actual materials, whatever.

His request is specifically:

"I['m] trying to collect information and images of Italian gothic armour
from the 15 c. I've got both classical books on Madonna della Grazie
collection by Mann, and article about "Devil Mask" armour (don't remember
author). I also have some popular (but not so useful) images of armour from
Cherburg collection, and some other. May be main treasury - Italian frescoes
by Paolo Uccello and Pierro Della Francesca. Unfortunately, in Russia there
are no samples of Italian armour from this period. I know, that some
European and American museums have in their collections Italian armours and
it's parts. May be you can help me with this theme? I looking for
*everything*: images, reports of investigation, museum describes, links,
books and articles on history, trade and production of such armour, and so
