1 Sharpe, Philip B. The Rifle In America
New York Morrow 1938 First Edition SIGNED by the Author
Very Good+ in the publisher's pebbled maroon cloth. Both the spine and the decorative front board are stamped in gilt. 641pps., plus numerous black-and-white plates. Stated First Edition. No dustjacket. There is modest rubbing wear to the spine-ends and to the upper tips. The date 12-2-39 is neatly penned in the upper corner of the ffep. and some lower page-corners are mildly bent. Otherwise excellent: clean and bright. The binding is square and tight; both hinges are fine. SIGNED by the author with 'Greetings, Mr. Shooter' on the ffep. With an introduction by Julian S. Hatcher.

"...To every red-blooded American the rifle is a weapon with a deep and romantic appeal. The rifle was developed from a mechanical monstrosity into a marvel of precision by our pioneer forefathers of colonial days, and had no small share in gaining them their freedom. In fact, it was the War of the American Revolution that first brought the rifle prominently before the eyes of the world as the one firearm that made marksmanship possible..."
