    Quotations
    • 1786: What was the particular form or construction of the almaine ryvetts, I have not been able to discover, but conjecture they were denominated ryvetts, from having the joints of the arm made flexible by means of rivets, a contrivance possibly invented or perfected in Germany, or perhaps that country might be famous for a manufactory of this kind of armour. — Francis Grose, A Treatise on Ancient Armour and Weapons, page 20.
