Scope and Content

Collected manuscript notes and sketches. 'The object of these Fragmenta... is to give the student short references to a large number of existing suits of plate armour of all types from 1383 to the time when armour was no longer forged. The guiding principle in dating armours followed by me is to date the suit from the breast. Every armour is built up from the breast. It is the main piece of the suit. It is to be remembered that for the most part the evidence of what pieces a suit was originally composed of, is as a rule slender'.
