Robert Abels was the esteemed competitor of the Francis Bannerman company (Bannerman's Military Goods Catalogue) of New York. Both carried a line of antique and used military equipment that could be considered a notch above what we think of as "military surplus dealers". Abels, at the time had a more varied and diverse stock of materials for sale especially in the gun and sword lines. He considered himself to be greatly superior to the Bannermans. His catalog is sensibly arranged in rough chronological order beginning with matchlock and flintlock pistols and progressing through percussion and cartridge handguns. He does the same for long guns but edged weapons are grouped by type as are armor and crossbows and the like. Each offering is carefully illustrated and priced by Abels and his assistant Bernard Day. These books are important for the collector because of the care of presentation and the wealth of knowledge the descriptions offer.
