Bannerman 1955 Military Goods Catalogue

Soft Cover, New Re-issue. Digitally Restored, Cleaned and Enhanced 8 1/2" x 11", 306pp.

NEW BOOK-The Bannerman Company dated from the Civil War. They were one of the first merchants to recognize the value of surplus military goods and became the premier private arms dealer in the world for a time. Later, they bought 90% of the surplus from the Spanish American war and stored in their shop on Broadway in New York. The city fathers eventually learned that that Bannerman had some 90 tons of explosives in their base34ment and so invited them to remove same right away. The company bought Bannerman Island on the Hudson River near West Point and built an impressive castle there they called the Bannerman Armoury.

The company prospered until the 1970s. Catalogues of their goods were routinely issued for almost one hundred years although the quality of the printing deteriorated over the years as the staff aged and pages were reproduced. Bannerman catalogues educated young and old readers alike for generations during the 20th and latter 19th centuries. Not only did the company offer for sale an amazing variety of weaponry and accessories, they took pride in showing the evolution of weapons and included many pages of descriptions, drawings, photos and even patent applications. This is a weapon history book in itself!
