*I Have a nifty trick for you! If you have trouble reading small type on my website or any other, you can increase the size of the text on the screen by holding down the Control key (that's the one in the lower left of the keyboard with Ctrl on it) and scrolling the wheel on top of your mouse back and forth.

**************************************************************

*I've been busy this month with a new website. Actually I am not doing this one, Virginia Carter of Carolina Web Creations, www.carolinawebcreations.biz is doing the new website. She is young, energetic and much more talented than I am, so this time I'm letting a professional designer do the work. Why a new website? Well, recently a reader pointed out to me that my index page (front page, if you will) was all messed up. It looked fine to me but he assured me it was a ghastly scramble, so incompetently assembled, that no respectable search engine would pay any attention to it. Sigh... I tried so hard!

The next day in a flash of indignation I resolved to "fix it" myself, a task I shortly learned was far beyond my grasp. Next, I invested a month's profits in the very latest Adobe Dreamweaver website development program with which I was determined to find and fix all the inscrutable and invisible errors. No such luck. So, one day I found myself on the Adobe users forum asking what turned out to be a question that instantly revealed my ineptitude to legions of people who earn their living at the game. Sigh... One kindly member confidentially suggested I contact their moderator who would put me in touch with a real programmer who would help me.

Virginia was the delightful young woman who came to the rescue of this unschooled website veteran. She tried her best to fix my grievous errors and egregious mistakes before finally confiding to me that if I would just let go, she could easily and swiftly design a new website that would retain the appearance I worked so diligently to achieve but with a "modern database engine". As I type this on my 1926 steam powered Royal typewriter, Virginia's fingers are dancing over a keyboard somewhere transferring my aged prose into zeros and ones far beyond my comprehension.

So, by next newsletter, you should see a much improved and faster website at Cornell Pubs. I hope to be able to add much better cross-indexing and other as yet unimagined features.

*This month we topped 10,000 subscribers to this newsletter from all over the world. Whoopee!

**************************************************************

*I want to share something useful with you.

ImageAs you know I have scanned literally thousands of old catalogs and a great number of them came from generous customers who allowed me to copy their investments. A few guys shared because they wanted the free exchanges but most really understand how important it is to preserve these bits of history for future generations. Also, most older people know that it is likely that when they eventually expire a well meaning executor is likely to come across the pile of old catalogs and say "Ewwww, guns!" and ditch the lot. If that happens, at least we will have an electronic copy.

But don't worry, I plan to keep my work alive long after I am gone by either selling the business or donating it to several worthy organizations. Among my favorite organizations, I like to support Rudi Prusok and the American Single Shot Rifle Association archive by giving him copies of my seconds (Rudi was also the source of scores of catalogs when I first started).

Now, the purpose of this introduction is to give you a tip about how to handle old catalogs without damaging them. This technique to protect old paper may be useful to you when you read your old catalogs and it may inspire more of you to share your collections with me and by extension with thousands of other folks now and in the future by giving you confidence in my ability to care for your goods. Oh yes, don't worry that if you allow me to copy your investment, my small output of historic reprints will somehow depreciate the now worldwide market in original ephemera. It won't!

Image

Whenever I scan a delicate old catalog with its' covers hanging by a thread (and not wishing to be the one who detaches someone else's covers), I line up a bunch of paper clamps along the hinge of the book to hold the covers in place and then scan each page. This simple technique works wonders and saves old paper from harm. It also gives you handles to pick up the book!

The top picture shows my large format scanner with Len DeBerry's 1936 Ithaca catalog and the bottom is his 1907 Ithaca on my book scanner. When I use the book scanner, the catalog hangs over the side of the scanner and only needs to be opened 90 degrees. This allows much less stress to be placed on the spine.

So there you have it, a tip that I hope will result in a torrent of eager collectors now willing and eager to let me scan their old gun catalogs... but, please call or write first, don't just send them because I may already have scans of that particular item. I still have hundreds of old catalogs on file that I haven't got to yet. Thanks, Abby

New Books and Special thanks (see the bottom of this letter for the complete alpha list without accompanying text):

Image

An early mention has to be about the SMFM company catalog of 1959 (Societe Moderne de Fabrications Mecaniques) which features the amazing... dada dum... La Cartouche Ėlectrique! Yes, folks our French cousins actually marketed the Fusile de chasse électrique, an electric shotgun! Don't miss this rare collectible with the cutaway diagrams and complex explanations, and should you need an extra "Pile Wonder" to give it that extra jolt, here is what one looks like.

Cal Martin loaned me a Dunham-Fulton Gun Co. Catalog 1905 of Oshkosh, WI (formerly Frank Percey) carried a surprisingly broad range of guns for a little company in dairy country.

Minisiev Karlov of Rumania sent over a little catalog that travelled a long way. The Cartridges for the Collector (Far West Hobby Shop) 1937 is an unusually complete catalog of very rare ammunition. Although it is not illustrated the complete descriptions are a great help for any collector.

The Dewey Gun Co, Roxbury, CT c1959 was a little shop in Connecticut that did some interesting custom work. Thanks to Vinnie Carbone. Ferd Drissen 1898-4 Catalog was one of the Liege, Belgium gunmakers of the 19th century and this catalog is a rare European peak at early exports from there.

Mike Blake, our good friend from Auld Blighty sent us scans of the Eley, ICI, Kynoch Cartridges Nobel, Curtis & Harvey (UK) c1926, the ICI-Eley 1936 Short Handbook (UK) and a super rare Flobert 1928 Gun Catalog. Mike threw in a Jeffery Used Guns 1927 (UK). He also introduced me to Microsoft Messenger as a tool to transfer many large images without all the hassle of FTPs and protocols etc., just drag and drop. What a pleasure, so anyone who wants to do some scanning for me, here is a simple way to send it!

Lance Baracoa found three more Firearm Internationals to go with FI 1969 we have already. Firearms International 1954, Firearms International 1962, Firearms International 1964. FI imported FN Mauser, Sako, Star, Janssen, Valmet, Mannlicher, Cadix, Regent, La Salle, AYA, Luminar the Finnish Lion and other brands.

The Great Western Gun Catalog (Pittsburg) 1872 company, was the ubiquitous mail order catalog after the Civil War that could be found in any saloon or general store west of the confluence of the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers where the Ohio River forms. Thanks to Colin Chapman for this one.

Joe Norcom loaned us the little No. 62 Greener's (UK) c1937 Guns. Graham Greener says the prices and guns are consistent with the c1937 date. I do my best to seek advice when I am uncertain of a date so I invite you to tell me if I make a mistake. Joe was also the source of two Midland Guns catalogs that beautifully compliment the ones I already have. Midland was one of the largest and longest lived mail order house in the UK. Joe sent us the Midland Guns 1914 (UK) and the Midland Guns 1936 (UK) to complement our Midland Guns 1924, Midland Guns 1927 and Midland Guns 1949.

Doctor Jim Whisker keeps coming up with his hugely researched books on gunsmiths of the flintlock and percussion era. This month we can offer Gunsmiths & Allied Professions of Western Pennsylvania to go with all his others... more to come!

This month I am very pleased and flattered to give very special thanks to Len DeBerry who insured his irreplaceable early Ithaca catalogs for megabucks before shipping them to me to scan. The reprints are really beautiful and I am so happy to be able to offer: Ithaca 1907 Gun Catalog, Ithaca 1909 Gun Catalog, Ithaca 1912 Gun Catalog, Ithaca 1914 Gun Catalog, Ithaca 1919 Gun Catalog, Ithaca 1926 Gun Catalog, Ithaca 1932 Gun Catalog, Ithaca 1936 Gun Pocket Catalog, Ithaca 1937 Gun Catalog, and the Ithaca 1942 Gun Catalog.

Jim Buchanan is a world recognized ammunition expert who has helped me for years. In fact, his reprints of old British ammunition catalogs helped me get started. Jim sent me the Kynock 1934 Ballistics (UK) catalog as well as the Nobel Ammunition 1921 (UK) catalog. Hans Stock loaned me an RWS Ammunition 1956 (Germany).

I don't know too much about the Krupp-American c1959 (Glenwood, Minn) company except that, I assume, they were tied to the German industrial giant in some way. If anyone knows the whole story, please tell me about them.

People are always asking about Proof Marks and I am pleased to add the Proof Tests and Proof Marks 1946 publication by the Army Ordnance Association to my list of Reference Books

The Fred Biffar (Chicago) Gun Catalog c1923 was a wholesale outfit that sold most everything a small sport shop might need to be appealing to the flapper crowd. The Thos. Leary (NY) 1898 company is interesting because of what they imported; F. Doumoulin guns from Liege. Another Liege company was the much later Schroeder Freres Guns (Liege) 1946 which survived the war.

Rigarmi was a major Italian supplier in the 50s; Rigarmi 1958 (Italy). The Wm. Schaefer c1885, Boston, MA company was a big player too. He sold Frank Wesson, Shattuck, Henry Tolly, Ballard and Westley Richards guns among others including Chas. Daly

I did the Folsom Gun Materials 1929 catalog mainly for the Ads for Crescent Shotguns of that year, but they also advertise Audley holsters and have a number of parts diagrams that could be useful.

*Download our latest flyer of old gun catalogs requires Adobe Reader - which is free- if you don't have it click: Get Adobe Reader

By the way, last year Paypal softened it's previously hard line with respect to firearms and is now much more reasonable. I wrote about it in my July 2007 Newsletter.

Notes for New Readers (and useful information)-

*I get, on average, about 300 new subscribers each month. Many are folks who signed up and others are people I automatically signed up when they bought something at an auction site or my website. Of the ones I sign up to get the newsletter normally only six or eight unsubscribe, usually because they have a last name the same as a catalog they bought or made the purchase for a friend or relative. I am naturally flattered that so many folks are pleased to hear from me once a month and thank you all for your indulgence.

*The purpose of this section is to repeat in every newsletter some of the things I have said in past newsletters. By naming the section "Notes for New Readers", longtime subscribers may simply skip over it and read something new to them.

*Paypal- I use Paypal to process credit cards because they are cheaper by far than a bank for a small online business, They are reliable and they are secure. No, I don't like many of their policies but they are the best and least expensive I can find so we have to live with it. I do accept checks if you prefer and I don't wait for them to clear. If you stiff me with a check you go directly to the Rants and Raves column with your full name and address displayed for the world to see. By the way, Paypal has softened it's previously hard line with respect to firearms and is now much more reasonable. I wrote about it in my July 2007 Newsletter.

*This is a listing of History books: mostly naval (US & UK) and Civil War history we have in our library that are duplicates. If you would like one (or more) let me know and you can buy them for 50% off the listed price at the website. Just cut and paste the online listing (or write it out) into an email to: abby@cornellpubs.com

DIRECTORY TO ANTIQUARIAN BOOKS AT ABBY'S BOOKS

*Ebay- The wizards at Ebay decided (just after they laid off a whole bunch of employees and their business is down) that they will no longer allow sellers to advertise that they will accept money orders or checks in payment for purchases made on Ebay. Customers may still pay that way but we cannot advertise the fact. I think the idea is to force people to use Paypal, which is owned by Ebay. Now, to be perfectly honest, I would be much happier if you bought things from my website Cornellpubs.com because that saves me sales commissions to Ebay!

*Hint- If you are using the browser Firefox and have trouble seeing any images on this website, try hitting the refresh button. Meanwhile I will continue trying to figure out how to make my website more compatible with the many different browsers out there.

*INDEXES for Every Catalog I reprint... Every catalog I offer has an index at the bottom of the page or in the case of new listings on the right. Listings on Ebay, Gunbroker and Auction Arms also have indexes.

At my website, you will find many gunmaker "master pages" listing all the catalog reprints of one brand. To the right of each "master page" are names of catalogs by merchants who carried that brand of firearms. For example, I reprint over 60 Remington factory gun catalogs but I also reprint over 160 gun catalogs from merchants that sold Remington firearms such as Sears or Abercrombie & Fitch or Spalding. Those are the listings on the right of the page.

Using the merchant links, you can identify a catalog from just about any year that displays the Remington line and by looking at the individual page indexes you can figure out what models were made in what year without spending a dime. Of course I would be happy to sell you those catalogs too! Most major gunmakers have a "master page" and I am adding more all the time. Just start with any category link: All Catalogs, 1857-1899, Ammunition or any other and you will find that the capitalized links indicate "master pages". When you select one you will see on the right, the links to the other merchants who sold that brand.

*More on Indexes: Not all my indexes are alphabetized and can be difficult to search. Until I find time to alphabetize all of them, hit the Control key (on the lower left) and the letter "F" on your keyboard. this will give you a little search box on the bottom of the screen. Start to type in the name of what you want to find on that page and it should be highlighted on the screen (this works with most browsers and on any web page). :-) Abby

*Gun Value & Parts- I get scores of phone calls that start out "I inherited this gun from my grandfather and I just want to know how much it is...", I do not do appraisals, nor do I sell parts. See below for parts suppliers.

*I often use the The Greenhill Dictionary of Guns and Gunmakers by John Walter, Greenhill/Stackpole Books 2001 - ISBN 1-85367-392-7 to answer many of the questions I get each week about the origins of gunmakers. Like many all-encompassing works, some of the information may be inaccurate but over-all it contains a wealth of facts, dates and important history of great old companies. Each year you can buy the Standard Catalog of Firearms which lists most guns and their value used at Borders or Barnes & Noble or online at Amazon.

*Why Buy Old Catalogs- originals or reprints? If you want to learn about a gun or gunmaker I applaud you, and am so happy you found my website. History is what I am working so hard to preserve by making old gun catalogs available to collectors and historians. Buy a catalog from a gunmaker of the appropriate year and you will learn a mountain of true facts about your gun- right from the maker's month, so to speak. Never again will you have to rely on hearsay or bluster.

*Research- To help you learn more about the history of gunmakers I have a page of what I call Reference Books on my website. They cover a wide range of information by authors and the page deserves a look. One of the most prolific authors of gun history was the late Joe Vorisek. I am fortunate to be the authorized only source of his gun histories. Joe even has his own webpage of all his histories.

*Browser Usage- Sometimes people mention they cannot follow the links I put in my newsletters, or that the pictures don't show up. Well, sometimes browsers are set to only receive messages in plain text. This is usually because their internet connection is slow and pictures make it even slower. There are settings to allow or disallow HTML language (pictures and links).

Your browser (the program you use to view emails and internet sites) can be set to allow you to click on links to other web pages. The link can either open a new window with the original window disappearing to a small block near the top of the screen or it replaces the current window with the new selection. In the former case to return to the prior window, click the box near the top of the screen. In the latter example click the "back arrow" also at the top of the page (different browsers such as Firefox, Netscape or Internet Explorer use different symbols for the back arrow). For the most part, I use links that replace the newsletter page with the new link. So, to return to the newsletter, you will have to use the back arrow to return to the newsletter.

*Must Read: If you haven't yet done so, please read the About Us link on the website. It explains a lot of things such as why graphics vary in books, why I do this in the first place, errors and mistakes, guarantees, loans and more. Also, if you see something in the Coming Soon page you want, let me know and I'll move it up the list for you.

*If you collect Military Arms please check out the link page I have to Government and Military Publications as well as 75 Manuals of the World's Military Weapons (1945) in A Basic Manual of Military Arms- 1945 as well as the link to Machine Guns.

*Old Newsletters- If you missed a newsletter or want to look up an old one, please go to my website www.cornellpubs.com and look on the top of the first page for a link to old newsletters. You may view them online and in color with pictures. Also, on the subject of newsletters, I send out the newsletter in both HTML and plain text format. This means that if your browser is not set up to view pictures and colors, you automatically get the plain text version. I hope this explains why some of you don't see the pictures referred to in the letters- I know it has caused some confusion. Also, you should upgrade to the latest version of your browser for best results. To learn which version of you have, click the HELP button on the top line of this page and then look for the link that says "About [browser]".

*YOUR ADDRESS- Yes, I am shouting! Each month I get angry phone calls, emails or letters from folks who "ordered the book xxx days ago and STILL DON'T HAVE IT! Usually they don't have it because the registered address at the website where they ordered the book is false (to "protect" their identity) or long outdated. When I point that out, they usually say that I should have double-checked or that their correct address was on their check or some other excuse. Sorry, I print address labels from the website as you typed it in. If your address is wrong the book goes to the wrong address. Please check your address at the website whenever you order something online. Thank you.

*How to pay for things on the internet while using your credit card with some safety... There are two areas of concern when you make the decision to pay online with your credit card. First, you have to make certain the site accepting your credit card is secure. There are two clues to security. One is in the URL or site address found at the top of the browser. Normally the URL begins with http://www etc. but a secure site has a different beginning. It starts with https://www. etc. The "S" means the site is using encryption software and it is pretty safe to send your card information to the company. By the way, do not send your credit card information in an email. Emails are NOT secure!

Of course, the second consideration has to do with what the company does with the information, the company integrity. If the company is located in Nigeria and you are sending money to "the government" to pay taxes on the $2,000,000 you won in their very generous random lottery, well, go ahead, you are a lost cause and I cannot help you. The point is to be careful about companies you never heard of before, don't know where they are located and the website has no telephone number. Caveat emptor, buyer beware. That is one of the reasons I like to pay with Paypal. When you do that you are giving only an email address to the company, not your credit card number.

**********************************************

*Parts suppliers. We get hundreds of calls about parts and some folks who are doing something about supplying parts...

Hello Abby, I am responding to your request for parts source information. For Remington Rolling Block Parts. We are attempting to supply reproduction parts needed to restore or rebuild the majority of models of rolling blocks made from 1867 onward. While this is a work in progress, I believe we are the largest supplier of these obsolete parts in existence. Thanks, Kenn Womack

Ever wonder who first purchased your gun or rifle or wished you had a certificate of origin? It could increase the value of your gun!

Sammy Baugh, or Eddie Dew or some other celebrity may have been the original buyer. Perhaps the provenance would increase the value of your favorite fowling piece or rifle. Well, now you have a chance to find out for free if the gun was sold by VonLengerke & Detmold or Abercrombie & Fitch, two of the largest and most prestigious gun houses of the 20th century.

Original Gun Catalogs and Books for sale:

Last fall I promised to unload some of the twenty or thirty boxes of originals blocking the second bay of my garage! Rather than list them on Ebay, I decided to first put up pages on my website (one page per box of about 70 catalogs each) with a list of catalogs priced at what I paid for them or in many cases much less. If they don't sell to my on-line clients I will then go to Ebay when I get a chance.

Here is the link to Box 4. All other boxes can be accessed at the bottom of the box 4 page. if you would like prior notice of the sales, please sign up for the announcement newsletter. The hundred and fifty or so people who already signed up knew about this sale last week and some of the bargains are already gone. To register for the special newsletter, send an email to the following address and put the word REGISTER in the subject line: eightbore@comcast.net. Many thanks to all of you who signed up! IF YOU HAVE ALREADY REGISTERED THERE IS NO NEED TO DO SO AGAIN.

This month's winner is: "hey mate whats the closest cap gun you have for sale that i can transform into a functioning hand gun caus im interested in making one." Padlockers in Australia

You don't want to do that! Cap guns are made with white metal and will explode in your hand if you try to fire a modern cartridge in it- might take your hand and eyes off too. Also, we are publishers, not firearms makers nor do we sell parts. ... Abby :) To see pages of Rants and Raves, and my replies, go to: RAVES and RANTS
