Quotations

  • 1786: Brazen or rather copper swords seem to have been next introduced; these in process of time, workmen learned to harden by the addition of some other metal or mineral, which rendered them almost equal in temper to iron. — Francis Grose, A Treatise on Ancient Armour and Weapons, page 31.
