The American Rifle: A Treatise, A Text Book, and a Book of Practical Instruction in the Use of the Rifle (in Dustjacket)
by Major Townsend Whelen
New York: The Century Co, 1918. Cloth. Very Good/Good +. The 1918 1st edition, in its uncommon --and very fragile-- dustjacket. Solid and VG (with rubbed lettering along the spine) in a bright, Good+ dustjacket, which is detached at the front flap-fold. Chipping --and a number of small closed tears-- along the panel edges, chipping at the spine crown as well. Still though, presentable --and uncommon as such. Octavo, one of the great early histories of the American rifle. (Inventory #: 14444)
