Описание: Many people ask how they can find out more about glass engraving. This book aims to answer this need by bringing together a collection of 200 pieces of work by nearly 70 of the world's finest contemporary glass artists.
Описание: Drawn from some of the worlds most prestigious collections, this comprehensive work is a visual and historical reference exploring the craftsmanship and technical progress of German pistol development from 1871 to 1914. Using specially commissioned colour photography, these ultra-rare and priceless side arms, many of which are shown for the first time, are portrayed in stunning detail, highlighting the engravers art, intricate designs, and ornamentation. Important weapons -- from Luger, Walther, Mauser, and many others -- belonging to aristocracy and heads of state have been selected to provide the reader with an appreciation of the gunsmiths artisanship. Rare prototypes illustrate key technical innovations, many of which remain prominent features in modern firearms today. Finally, rare pistols used for military trials are also included, marking the evolution of the pistol as an effective military weapon.
Описание: When originally published in 1981, The Hand Cannons of Imperial Japan was heralded as one of the most readable works on firearms ever produced. To arms collectors and scholars, it remains a prized source of information on Japanese handguns, their development, and their history. In this new Revised and Expanded edition, original author Harry Derby has teamed with Jim Brown to provide a thorough update reflecting twenty years of additional research. The authors have retained the format and much of the text of the original edition, focusing on military cartridge arms from the 1893-1945 period. Signal pistols, foreign-procured military handguns, ammunition, holsters, and accessories are also covered. Significant changes are included based on new findings, and a great deal of new information has been added, together with color illustrations of significant specimens. A number of newly discovered variants are identified and described, and expanded tables of reported serial numbers and production data are provided. Coverage and explanation of Japanese markings has been greatly enhanced, and a detailed study of inspection marks on the most widely known Types 14 and 94 is included. An appendix on valuation has also been added, using a relative scale that should remain relevant despite inflationary pressures. For the firearms collector, enthusiast, historian or dealer, this is the most complete and up-to-date work on Japanese military handguns ever written. Like its predecessor, it is certain to become a classic firearms reference and a benchmark for further research.
Описание: This volume has been prepared as an inexpensive guide to Japanese military handguns of the first half of the 20th Century. It is intended primarily for the collector who, upon encountering a new specimen, wants information to identify, classify and evaluate it in order to make a decision on its purchase. It will also be useful to dealers in establishing values, and to firearms owners who simply want to know where an individual pistol or its accessories fit in the overall picture of Japanese military collectibles.

It is a common sense, step-by-step guide to making the decision to purchase a gun, selecting the correct gun, securely keeping a gun in the home, and maintaining the proficiency necessary to be a safe gun owner 100 percent of the time.

Before you know it, you'll be "making brass" on the target range. The manual provides clear instructions for taking care of your firearms, from cleaning and general maintenance to minor repairs. Campbell covers accessories such as holsters and magazines and demystifies the sometimes confusing array of ammunition available in every caliber, including an introduction to handloading. Informal and fun to read--but full of information from decades of handgun experience--"The Complete Illustrated Manual of Handgun Skills" is required reading for any handgun owner.
