Very Good with No dust jacket as issued. 126 pages, plates in color, pictorial wrappers, very good. From the Preface by James E Serven: "Few people have had Mr. R. L. Wilson's opportunities for intimate knowledge of Colt activities in recent years. And few have been as close to the purchase, sale and collecting of the Colt commemorative pistols as Mr. Charles Kidwell (publisher of the 1st edition) and Mr. Robert E. P. Cherry (publisher of the present edition). There can be little doubt that these men are eminently qualified to father a book devoted to the various commemorative pistols which have come from Colt workbenches since 1961."
