From the DJ: "Most British gunmakers between 1760 and 1860 possessed a trade card with the result that they provide a natural chronology of the trade, as well as being in themselves an example of the engraver's art. Around 1790 they stopped being just business cards and were increasingly pasted inside the lid of a gun case. The authors, having collected and photographed trade cards for over 40 years, moved inevitably towards a study of the development of the gun case and its equipment. By providing a photographic index of these cards, together with an historical account of the case and its content, they have not only produced a work of deep interest to all gun collectors but also provided an essential work of reference for authentication and dating of firearms of the period. It will help collectors who have incomplete sets to know just what the original equipment was and, in the case of weapons whose cases are lost, to know the style they took and the details of their complete fittings."; 9.70 X 7.30 X 0.90 inches; 166 pages.
