Описание: This new book is the first in English on this fascinating and increasingly popular military collectible. The main purpose of this book is to provide the reader with accurate information to aid in translating, determining the origin, value and history of the Japanese military Sake cups. Sake cups were commissioned by naval troops, pilots, tank crews, supply crews, infantrymen, cavalrymen, telegraph and railroad engineers with an innumerable variation of colors and designs. Each cup is a mini time capsule with the owners name and regiment inscribed, enabling the collector to search for the background and history of the soldier who once drank a victory toast, or a farewell toast with these very cups. It is hoped the book will foster a greater understanding and appreciation for this little known field of Japanese militaria/art collecting.
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: An extensive and in-depth study of the non-military and civilian toy figures made by Britains, covering the early mechanical toys of the 1880s through to the final hollow cast toys from 1966. During the inter-war period, the British toy-buying public rejected war-like/military toys, providing Britains with the opportunity to introduce their Farm, Zoo and Circus lines -- all of which in some way reflected the social history of the time in the United Kingdom. Prolific in their output, Britains were quick to realise the potential of the huge U.S. market and exported vast numbers of toys via a number of importers in the eastern and mid-western states. Included are 970 colour photographs of toys including Miniature Garden, Civilian Vehicles, Boy Scouts, Girl Guides, Salvation Army and Cowboys and Indians, etc., along with British Royalty figures. Together with Football/Soccer and Famous Horse Racing Colors and their Jockeys, this book provides colourful insight into the hobby of collecting these hollow cast lead toys. A guide to current values is included in the captions.

Описание: This is the first comprehensive treatment of the composition and historiographic background of ancient Egyptian military inscriptions (c. 1550 B.C. to C. 450 B.C.). In his chronological study Anthony Spalinger analyzes numerous texts from a formalistic as well as a literary viewpoint. His discovery--that aspects of ancient Egyptian military writing were regulated by a preexisting framework and set phraseology--will enable historians of ancient Egypt to discriminate between what was hyperbole and what was reality in a given military situation. The opening chapters of this work cover the briefer and simpler of the Egyptian military texts. A standard subgenre of this writing was the so-called iw.tw texts (meaning "One came"), in which the events of a war were couched in an official report by a messenger to the Pharaoh. These short inscriptions became a stock part of Egyptian military writing in the early days of the Empire and were carried down to the end of Pharaonic civilization. Spalinger next deals with the stock lexical items employed by the Egyptians when drawing up military compositions. He then considers the official war diary of the scribes as well as the more literary war accounts. In the final chapter Spalinger describes how the ancient Egyptians themselves classified their military texts. Although recognizing that the different Pharaohs had stylistic preferences, he relates the method of inscription chosen by the Egyptians to the importance of the military event or to the amount of detail preferred.
