This is a hard to find, out of print, oversized hardcover volume of Daniel Hartzler and James Whisker's US Martial Single Shot Pistols book, which is a photographic chronicle of military and semi-martial pistols supplied to the United States Government and the several states from 1776 to 1845. It is in excellent clean condition with clean, tight pages and no dust jacket as issued. It was published in 1997 by the Old Bedford Village Press. This is a nice find for the collector and an incredible compilation, which ship safely via USPS Priority Mail with insurance and tracking to protect its wonderful condition. This would be a great addition to your library or collection.
