Do any of you guys know any good books on weapons used by any culture. Especially the orient?

I found this book

http://search.barnesandnoble.com/booksea...69671&itm=2

and

"Secrets of the Samurai", by Oscar Ratti and Adele Westbrook

online, both books say they have pictures of the weapons they are talking about which is really what I want if possible but I can live without it.

Do you guys ever see Ebay or another auction site carry these books, and is it rare when they put them up to be sold? Also do you guys know any other places to buy these and other books online that would cost me the lowest price?

Do you guys reccomend buying new or used as well?

I'm on dial up so it can suck to look up stuff online.

Thankyou

Thankyou Matt.

Did you know of the two books I posted? Did you think the kung fu one looked interesting?

I'm definately going to buy the barnes a nobles kung fu weapons book and most likely the other one as well.
