Very Good in Very Good dust jacket. 0939549085. 216 pages, well illustrated (most in color), cloth, dust jacket, fine. 9 by 12 inches. Sixth edition. Foreword by Norm Flayderman. From the DJ: "The American West was won with a multitude of firearms, from single-shot pistols and Colt revolvers to Plains rifles and Winchester repeaters. Here, the variety of military and civilian gunleather that housed this romantic array of weaponry is illustrated, explained and celebrated. The first work to competently and accurately describe the holsters, gunbelts, saddle scabbards and various other equipment which made carrying and wearing firearms practical. Organized by style and date, with more than 300 exceptional color photographs, and 100 important historical images Packing Iron is a handsomely designed portrait of this important facet of our frontier heritage. The extensive, entertaining, fact-filled text provides a fascinating history of these artifacts and recognizes the many leather artisans who created these cultural heirlooms. The reader is introduced not only to the military products fabricated at historic government arsenals, but also to the romantic spectrum of custom gunleather made by western saddlers. Here, one encounters the work of famed frontier craftsmen like Collins, Frazier, Furstnow, Gallatin, Gallup, Heiser, Main & Winchester, Meanea and Myers. PACKING IRON is a book no student or collector of Americana should be without."
