Description:

500 pages. 9.25" x 12.25". Huge volume. Hundreds of detailed color and black & white photographs depicting the work of the Winchester master firearms engravers. Inside is the very heart of the legend known as Winchester - and more. Each rifle tells its' story with eloquence and old world grace: one was engraved for a general, the next a homemaker, later one for a king. The faces of these masterworks reveal the history of their long lives: the hopes, dreams, failures and successes of the people who made our world what it is. Much more than a chronicle, WINCHESTER ENGRAVING unveils the work of these gifted artisans in a way that helps you unerstand and appreciate their art. R.L. Wilson, America's most published arms authority, shares a lifetime of travel, research, study and meetings with engravers and firearms craftsmen. Many thousands of firearms were reviewed and examined. Each example is carefully explored, and detailed in extensive captions, forming a continuous flow of important information which supplements each chapter's introductory text. Collectors, decorative arts enthusiasts and historians, will benefit from previously unpublished secrets of the great master arms engravers: Gustave Young, L.D. Nimschke, the dominant styles of the Ulrich dynasty, R.J. Kornbrath and the variety of embellishments by today's craftsmen, the likes of the Kusmit brothers and A.A. White, working both in and outside of the Winchester factory. Here is a classic refernce work, or value to all arms collectors and Americana enthusists. Still the most important work on Winchester engravers. There is very slight corner bumping, otherwise this is a new, unread copy of this valuable reference book. Overall the Book and the Dust Jacket are in Near Fine condition. Language: eng Language: eng Language: eng Language: eng Language: eng. Bookseller Inventory # 4976
