The Armory Chamber, a part of the Moscow Kremlin historical and cultural complex, is the oldest museum in Russia. Its collection consists of the rarest productions of Russian and foreign masters from the fourth to the twentieth centuries, the most important part of which is the collection of arms and ceremonial equestrian attire.

Created to help expand and defend the power of the Tsars, the objects in this collection are eloquent reminders of the history of the Russian state. A selection from this trove of weapons and equipment is shown here, including such types of arms as:
-- Armor, mail, and helmets
-- Finely wrought swords and lances
-- Side arms, including hand guns and dueling pistols
-- Exquisitely inlaid muskets and rifles
-- Uniforms and equestrian paraphernalia

This lavishly illustrated, full-color book was created as a guide to a special traveling exhibit of Russian treasures held at the Tower of London in 1998. It is sure to appeal to those who value fine craftsmanship and seek deeper insight into the great struggles and conflicts of the past.
