American Munitions circa 1880


#1

Another rare work available for PDF download, a copy of
"American inventions and improvements in breech-loading small arms, heavy ordnance, machine guns, magazine arms, fixed ammunition, pistols, projectiles, explosives, and other munitions of war, including a chapter on sporting arms", by Norton (1880)
A hard to find book, the scan is courtesy Cornell University and should be of interest to anyone interested in the state of the munitions industry circa 1880, with good coverage of ammunition, Gatling guns, companies involved etc etc
