Project Description


A Lifetime Passion for Antique Arms and Armour

An unprecedented insight into one of the most prestigious and exquisite private collection of Gothic and early Renaissance arms and armour in England assembled over more than fifty years by Reginald T. Gwynn at Dame Annis Barn, Epsom.

After the original manuscript written by the collector himself, this new publication will give the reader an exceptional tour of this unique and exclusive collection considered to be a “true gem” of the Golden Age of arms and armour.

Through the eyes of its owner, a passionate connoisseur but above all a true gentle man, the reader will gain a special insight on how this splendid collection was created, maintained, researched and studied with the help of leading experts and scholars worldwide.

A well deserved tribute to one of the Great Collectors of the 20th century.
