I have hesitated for months to post this, as I don’t like asking others to go to a lot of work for me. I have decided to go hat in hand, however.
I maintain my library not only for my own use, but to help others. I charge no one, including LE Agencies, etc. for any work I do for them from that library, even if it means making many copies and mailing things out at my expense. I am glad to do this.
I have a huge hole in my library by not having a single Remington catalog from befor 1950. It has hampered me trying to research many things for many people, including several instances lately.
I am not asking people send me original catalogs. We all like to have them, but I understand fully they are now collectors items more than just information, and since I need only information, an original catalog is not that important to me. If anyone, though, has any pre-1950 catalog already scanned (I do not want to ask people to scan them speficially for me), and could send the scans of the entire catalogs to my email address, I would appreciate it.
I know this is asking a lot, and I apologize for that. It remains, though, the worst gap in my entire library. I do not have a good library of any pre-WWII catalogs other than Winchester, and that because of the 12 volume set of reprints that I purchased, but Remington represents the biggest hole.
I thank anyone in advance for any assistance they may give me.
