Book Description: Iola, WI: Krause Publications, 1997. Hardcover. Book Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. 1st Edition. One copy only! Mint condition! Tall, thick, heavy quarto, gilt-stamped maroon leatherette, full-color pictorial dustjacket. 463 pages, profusely illustrated with photos, charts, drawings, etc., appendix, biblio., index. Around the beginning of the American Civil War, arms inventors were beginning to experiment with the revolutionary new technology of firing metallic self-contained cartridges instead of the old, outdated cap-and-ball percussion loads. This book is virtually the first ever to explore the intriguing events surrounding the manufacture of small-frame cartridge revolvers by Samuel Colt and other American gunmakers. Chapters include: The First Cartridge Revolvers, Circumventing the Rollin White Patent, Colt Thuer Conversions, C.B. Richards Conversions, Richards-Mason Conversions, the Model 1871-72 Open Top Revolver, Remington Conversions--and much, much more! The author--a respected arms authority before his recent death--spent many years studying these revolutionary revolvers, and had access to the finest collections for his research. The result is this book--the first and only complete study of Colt conversion revolvers. The book is as-new, tight, bright, clean and straight, in its matching full-color pictorial dustjacket. The jacket is complete with a new clear mylar protector. You'll love this book--order it today! You'll be glad you did! And thanks for visiting. Bookseller Inventory # 070207.rob.001
