Seller ID: 1033

Condition: Very good


Though there is no reprint publisher named and the date shows as 1874, this booklet is far too new for this to be true. I think this is the Ray Riling reproduction from 1960. I had one once and, as I recall, it looked like this. The booklet was originally published in 1874 by the National Armory of Springfield, Mass. The pages are constructed from quality coated paper, including the fold-out diagram at the back. The booklet measures 6"x9-1/2" and has 51 illustrated pages. There is much information here. Very clean with sunning to spine only. former owner's large pictorial bookplate is on the b... View more info

Edition: Vol. II No. 7

Condition: Very good


This one's a cross between a newspaper and a magazine. Retains the newspaper look, but the paper itself is much more substantial which is why it looks so nice. This is NOT the publication of the same name issued by Andy Palmer of Michigan. This one is harder to find and came from Ohio, though Palmer's is getting to be scarce too. The magazine measures 12"x18" and has 12 pages of dense text. It's clean, crisp and bright with just some light toning to edges at spots and darkening at crease. The articles are all short and cover a wide range of subjects, including Micahel Corcoran, a colorful of... View more info

Edition: Vol. LXXIX, No.7

Seller ID: 1319

Condition: Good-plus


Magazine has been cleaned by me and a short area at top of spine has been repaired, also by me, with almost invisible archival tape to keep it from worsening. There is still some soil to cover, but overall this is a nice, tightly bound piece. It's a large one too measuring 9"x12". The big story to me was the launch of the first muzzleloading shooting matches at Portsmouth, Ohio, an event which also launched the rebirth of shooting black powder firearms as a sport. Other topics include woodchuck hunting, the Super-X. cartridges, the new Bausch & Lomb Spottong Scope, and much more. 52 pages View more info

Here we have two enormous books in clean, bright condition with no creasing to spines. Very clean pages and page edges. Only fault is creasing to upper front corner of cover on volume 1.

Also covers obsolete ammunition, turned and drawn cases for obsolete ammo, custom loading dies, hard-to-find ammunition, miscellaneous data, gunsmithing and warranty, new factory parts and accessories and tools listed alphabetically and more.

Trade catalogs are always interesting to peruse, but if you are a hunter or target shooter, this one is a blast (ha-ha!) from the past, especially when you see the prices. There are many illustrations and a vast variety of products filling 264 pages. The catalog measures 8-1/2" x 11" and is tightly bound and clean. There's some wear to the spine edges, but none is serious and doesn't impinge on the integrity of the binding. The lower corner of the front cover and the top corner of the back cover are creased, but I opened the layers of paper and re-glued them and also stabilized them on the rev... View more info

The Cleveland Sportsmen Show has been around a long time -- since 1927. The first time around it filled Public Auditorium for just three years due to the Great Depression. Seven years went by and finally in 1937 the doors opened again. This guide measures 4-1/2" x 11-1/4" and opens to four panels which measure 17-3/4" across.The 1939 show opened April 15th and closed April 23rd. What's interesting is unusual competitions which included log-rolling, canoe tilting, wood chopping and cross-cut-sawing. They also had casting tricks and demonstrations, game retrieving, marksmanship, deep-sea fish... View more info

Very nice catalog plus lots of extra goodies. The main attraction of course is the catalog which has 40 pages of products. Each item is photographed and described with plenty of detail. The catalog measures 7-1/2" x 9-1/2" and is very clean with just some light foxing to first and last pages. The catalog slips into the original envelope which is quite study, though has lost its flap. There had also been a letter which came in the letter section at the bottom of the larger envelope, but it has not survived. However, there's a nice brochure about the K-22 ,the Outdoors Man's Revolver, which ope... View more info

It's amazing how a simple configuration of gun powder tins and a muzzle-loading rifle above them can be so stunning, but stunning it is. The colors are warm and inviting and the various labels catch the eye.The poster measures 17" x 22", a nice size for framing which doesn't require a lot of wall space. There's no date, though I did try to find one with no luck. I bought the poster rolled which will make it easy to ship and can later be flattened at a frame shop. I have a book press, but it's not big enough or I would do it. Altogether a handsome scene! View more info

Wow! This is a really nice find. Inside this envelope are many pristine, unused advertising products. The envelope was never mailed which is likely why everything inside is so perfect. The contents include the following: a letter to the dealer; a 1978 catalog replete with price sheet; a huge wall or window banner measuring 12" x 52"; and a counter card (10-1/2" x 14") affixed with a pad of tear-off coupons. None were used AND we have a second unused pad as well. View more info

This item would never win a beauty contest. I almost didn't buy it, but then I opened the back cover and saw the magnificent fold-out in COLOR. And that did it! When I got it home I did the following to improve it: used book cover cleaner and tons of paper towels, used black book tape on spine to stabilize binding; and used document pad to clean smudges. Believe it or not, it's actually come a long way. The pages are quite clean and tightly bound -- item is not often seen. It easures 4" x 6" and has 63 pages.
