Guns and Rifles of the World

Volume 49, Issue 12

GUNS AND RIFLES OF THE WORLD. By Howard L. Blackmore. (Viking, $30.00.) No, we did not make a misprint-the price is $30.00. You say that's a great deal of money? It is, but we say this book is worth it if Dad is a gun and rifle buff. First of all, Howard Blackmore knows as much about ancient weapons as anyone in the world, a knowledge he generously shares in well-organized, interesting chapters that start with the hand gun and continue through the late 19th century. His teachings are illustrated with over 1,000 splendid photographs.
