Washington DC: The American Ordnance Association, 1961. Pamphlet. 31p., a fine-press treatment on splendid paperstock (staplebound, but so be it), rubricated titlepage, pamphlet format; features seven plates each displaying numerous edged weapons (no lances, sorry), rifles and amazing pistols, some with author's personal experience of handling. A rather pedestrian-looking revolver is his favorite. Booklet has a lower-corner-tip bump, remarkably the sole blemish to its yapp- or clerical-margined design, which is provided with a minimalist colophon. Sound, clean and unmarked: very good to fine condition.
