About this Item: Davenport, IA: FIRAC, 2001, 1st Edition, First Printing, Iowa, 2001. Hard Cover. Condition: Fine (see description). Dust Jacket Condition: Fine (see description). Photo Cover (illustrator). First Edition. ----------hardcover, about 9.25w x 11.25h inches, overseas shipping (anywhere outside of Canada and the USA ) will require additional charges, -- a Near Fine to Fine example, in a Near Fine to Fine dustjacket, looks new, 632 pages, b&w and colour photos, some b&w illustrations, , ----" Each of Starís many models is placed in its historical context. The most important mechanical features are reviewed and an explanation is given as to how and why the guns changed over the course of their production. Prototypes, production guns, and presentation pieces have been painstakingly photographed with inserts of the most interesting features and markings. Tables illustrating proof marks and codes supplement extraordinary spreadsheets of specific serial numbers and annual summaries. Additional tables show pistols procured by the Guardia Civil and Spanish Police, and specify Starís exports to Bulgaria, Germany, and Switzerland during WWII. The handgun section is followed by chapters covering Starís .22 LR rifles and submachine guns. Materials in the appendix include the point criteria to import handguns into the United States, a comprehensive list of Spanish trade names matched to the manufacturer for arms made prior to the Spanish Civil War, and a summary of Starís global exports 1960 - 1989. Noted firearms author and historian Joseph J. Schroeder Jr. describes Star Firearms as a first-class book, one that deserves a place on the bookshelf of every student of 20th century small arms. This slightly oversized hardbound text measures 9¼ x 11¼ and contains 640 pages. There are over 1100 high-resolution B/W photos in addition to 47 pages of full color that emphasize engraved and gold damascened pistols. The book is a must for any serious collector or arms historian, for regardless of their interest, the high quality sets a new milestone in presentation"---"Star was founded in 1905 as a small family business whose goal was to manufacture top quality pistols. Sales of the M1914 and Izarra to the French military allowed Star to prosper during WWI. Shortly afterwards the Spanish Guardia Civil selected the M1920 to be their regulation sidearm. The testing process established a relationship that benefited Star for decades and provided the foundation for Star to become one of the most widely recognized names in the firearms industry. --After the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) Star was one of only three manufacturers allowed to continue making handguns. Thousands of Model Bs were sold to Germany and Bulgaria during WWII and in 1946 the Spanish Army selected the Super A to be their issue weapon. Over the next 50 years Star strove to dominate the Spanish arms industry, introducing an unparalleled array of commercial pistols. By the time Star closed in 1997, total production, including rifles and submachine guns, had reached nearly 2.5 million guns. --Star Firearms places each model in a historical context, emphasizes the most important mechanical features, and details how and why the guns were changed over the course of their production. The tables illustrating proof marks and codes supplement extraordinary spreadsheets that cover specific serial numbers and provide annual summaries. Prototypes, production guns, and presentation pieces have been painstakingly photographed with inserts of the more interesting features and markings. Complementing this well detailed text are numerous color compositions emphasizing engraved and gold damascened pistols. --Noted firearms author and historian Joseph J. Schroeder Jr. describes Star Firearms as a "first-class gun book, one that deserves a place on the bookshelf of every student of 20th century small arms." --This monumental work of over 600 pages and 1100 photos is one of the most informative texts of its genre. It is a must for any serious collector or arms historian regardless of their specific interest, for the depth of original research and quality of presentation sets a new milestone in firearms literature.
