Observations on Swords Eighteenth edition

Observations on Swords Eighteenth edition
Henry Wilkinson

The 18th Edition was published in the middle of Henry Wilkinson's career when the book was firmly established as a catalogue of the products and services of Wilkinson's of Pall Mall.

This facsimile reprint shows what was offered by the company in the mid Victorian period. It includes the regulation infantry sword, superb breech loading shotguns and the Wilkinson Double Action Government revolver. Also advertised were reprints of John Latham's lectures to The Royal United Service Institution on the Shape of Sword Blades.

There is information on early Breechloaders, The Progress of Breech Loading Small Arms and on Rifle Ranges. The products on offer include gun cases, swords and accoutrements, cartridges, items for deer stalking and boar hunting.

This book is an essential reference work.
