This book is a reprint of the 1927 auction catalog that sold the Arms and Armour collection of the Archduke Eugen from the armory at Fortress Hohenwerfen near Salzburg, Austria. The entire content from the armory (over 2000 individual items) was sold in 1155 auction lots on March 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5, 1927 in New York. The catalog has over 102 photographs showing 290 of the items in the sale including 10 suits of armor. Original copies of the 1927 Archduke Eugen Arms and Armour auction catalog are almost impossible to find and they are greatly desired by arms and armor collectors for its historical significance and valued reference of early weapons and armour from the 15th to 19 century. Original title of the 1927 auction catalog, sale number 2140 by The Anderson Galleries, New York, was "The Great Historical collection of Arms & Armour, the entire contents of the Armoury, Fortress Hohenwerfen near Salzburg, Austria, Inherited & Augmented by H. I. & R. H. Archduke Eugen, F. M.."
