X, 140 pages, well illustrated, cloth, dust jacket slightly frayed otherwise fine. 8.5 by 11 inches. Stated first printing. From the foreword: The post-Civil War era until the 1890's was a period of relatively low activity for the United States Navy. Consequently appropriations were at a minimum, a reality which forced the Navy to concentrate on necessities. Consequently, the Colt-Navy connection has been glossed over by most authors writing about the Colt revolver. It is the intention of this book to take a closer and more revealing look at the Navy's total activities during this era insofar as Colt firearms are concerned." ; 140 pages.
