I'm wondering if anyone knew of any good books on the history of Chinese weapons (swords, polearms, spears, etcetera)?

This is the kind of book I'm looking for (and might buy):

http://www.amazon.com/Weapon-Visual-Hist...3066&sr=1-3

However, I'm looking for one that's specific to Chinese weapons.

Before anyone recommends it, I'm not interesting in works by Yang Jwing-Ming.

I do not know of any books in particular, but if you can find a complete history book on kung fu itself, they often unclude weapons unique to certain styles.
