Table of Contents

Drawn from some of the world's most prestigious collections, this comprehensive work is a visual and historical reference exploring the craftsmanship and technical progress of German pistol development from 1871 to 1914. Using specially commissioned color photography, these ultra-rare and priceless side arms, many of which are shown for the first time, are portrayed in stunning detail, highlighting the engravers' art, intricate designs, and ornamentation. Important weapons -- from Luger, Walther, Mauser, and many others -- belonging to aristocracy and heads of state have been selected to provide the reader with an appreciation of the gunsmith's artisanship. Rare prototypes illustrate key technical innovations, many of which remain prominent features in modern firearms today. Finally, rare pistols used for military trials are also included, marking the evolution of the pistol as an effective military weapon.
