Firearms Curiosa

Lewis Winant

Bonanza Books, New York, 1955. First Edition Thus.

No dust jacket; foxing to top of text block; stain on the outer text block, otherwise very good! Priced accordingly given the lack of dust jacket.


This is an extremely cool book looking at weird guns of history. Gunblades, gunswords, guns that could blow a dinnerplate sized hole in a man’s chest, security system auto-firing guns, statues with working guns…all sorts of strange shit! Tons of illustrations and photos, fun histories of said weapons, a snapshot of a completely invisible part of history.
