Collecting Handguns, revolvers, pistols

This book is the Rosetta Stone for gun collectors!
The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Handguns is a fantastic reference for the avid gun and militaria collector.   It is a vast compendium of sketches and illustrations of thousands of handguns from around the world and across time.   It is organized by country of manufacture and includes a brief treatise on the companies referenced. The great value of this book lies in its use as tool to determine the origin of obscure, cryptically marked handguns and rare variations of better known models.
