Bob has written quite a lot of books, one of the last one (if not the last) was about the Stibbert museum armour collection.
I met him for the first time more than 30 years ago, bought from him my first swords. He introduced me to the "Bulletin de l'Association Franco-Japonaise" and hired me to translate articles for the English Edition of the Bulletin. A true scholar and if you have had the chance to visit his appartment, you would have seen the greatest private library on Eastern Art I have ever seen not mentionning, armours, yumi, swords, kriss....
