The Government Models: The Deveolpment of the Colt Model of 1911

by William H. D. Goddard

Condition: Near Fine/No Dust Jacket as published

From my personal gun collector library, this is a signed and numbered (023) First edition. A plate pasted to the inside of the front endpaper says that "Fifty Four copies of this Author's Edition printing have been leather bound by hand. They are numbered in the Model Room tradition. This book is copy 023." There is some wear to the color of the 5 spine bands and to the corner colors. There are absolutely first rate photographs of these early guns, a few in color but most b/w, but superbly done and crystal clear. If you are a serious student of the 1911 this book belongs in your library. Shipping will cost more than the standard rate due to the size and value of this book.
