Pictures are great and paper quality is good but I would have liked a touch more text explaining each gun.
Good but not much new. Vic Venters books always have great pics but much of this book is of those same pics.
Great photography showing a variety of guns and engraver's work. This book shows an incredible level of work. In addition it covers guns from a huge time frame. But most impressively the more modern works of art are very well documented.
