About this title


Book by Houze, Herbert G.

From Booklist:

This volume is appropriately dedicated to all the young dreamers whose interest in firearms was sparked by a first shot fired from a Winchester .22 caliber single-shot rifle. Provided here is a nostalgic history that discloses the chain of events that resulted in this classic rifle, which proved to be especially popular among youths. The Winchester Company first became interested in producing a single-shot rifle when Sharps Rifle Company failed; and Winchester progressed soon thereafter when it had the opportunity to examine a single-shot rifle produced by the Browning Brothers. The development of the single-shot Winchester rifle of 1885 soon followed. The evolution of the rifle and its successors is extensively documented and fully illustrated with design drawings and detailed photos. In all, more than 2.25 million of the various single-shot .22 caliber rifles were sold. Though it is not as well known as many of the Winchester Company's more famed products, it fostered a loyalty that lasted a lifetime. Fred Egloff

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
