The Wallace Collection holds the archives of two of the leading authorities on arms and armour from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Samuel Rush Meyrick and Claude Blair.
After Meyrick’s death, his arms and armour collection was sold, and parts of it can be found in the Wallace Collection’s European armour section today.
This small display celebrates the Meyrick and Blair archives, and includes illustrations, journals and correspondence highlighting the information which can be found in the Collection.
