This is a really beautiful book. It was written by R. L. Wilson and published by Abbeville Press Publishers, New York. The publication date is 1985. It is a hardcover book, retaining its original dust jacket. The book is used but the condition is very good with some wear to the dust jacket and a small tear on back corner. The book covers the history of the company from its beginnings in 1836 to the date of publication. The photographs in it are magnificent. Every gun model is described and illustrated and many of the gun models are from private collections and are extremely rare. There are over 400 photos in the book and more than 300 of them in color. The book lists the serial numbers of the guns and gives the years of manufacture. There is some biographical information on the founder, Sam Colt. This book is a fabulous find for both gun collectors and students of history.
