This would make a great gift for the Civil War buff - this is number 30 of a special hardbound edition of which only 100 were printed of Dean Thomas' book entitled Ready Aim Fire Small Arms Ammunition at the Battle of Gettysburg. It was published in 1981 by Thomas and Osborn Printing of Biglerville, PA. It is also signed by the author under the numbered copies info. It is the second printing of the first edition and is in excellent clean condition with almost no cover wear and clean, tight pages. It is illustrated throughout with photographs by Dean Thomas and drawings by Andy Rice. There are 76 numbered pages. It is noted on the final page that this book "is actually an elaboration of a display created by the author for one of the annual Gettysburg Civil War Shows." At the time, Thomas was the President of the Mason - Dixon Civil War Collectors Association which sponsored the show. It will ship safely via Priority Mail with tracking and insurance to protect its lovely condition. This would be a great addition to your library or collection.
