Wilson on special plate pasted onto half-title: "Hadlyme, Connecticut 06439 / (signature) / Inscribed by the Author. " Quarto, 272 pages, profusely illustrated, epilogue, appendices, index. This is THE book for collectors and researchers of the pocket-size American percussion pistols known as "deringers. " Philadelphia gunmaker Henry Deringer became known the world over, and his small-but-deadly pistol became a household name in the decades just before and after the Civil War. In fact, John Wilkes Booth used a "Deringer" pistol to murder President Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Theater in Washington on April 12, 1865 and thereby changed world history. Scores of deringer pistols are pictured and identified, not only those made by Henry Deringer himself but also his many competitors, both in the North, South and in Europe. The book is as-new, in its original color pictorial dustjacket having a new, clear mylar protector. You'll LOVE this book--Order it today!
