Description Shipping Notes
 

Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry.

This new book from Mowbray Publishers is the result of the author's almost 20 years of research. It attempts to shed light on the extent of the gun trade in Texas during its early times.

Though the military connection is touched upon in this book, the civilian gun trade is the main objective. Many of the old established gun dealers in Texas became quite successful, while others came and went.

Each major city seemed to have one gun dealer that stood above all others. Included in this extensive directory of over 1,200 dealers and makers are the Dance Brothers of Anderson, the Erichson family of Houston, E.A. Worden of Dallas, Charles Hummel of San Antonio, J.C. Petmecky of Austin, A.J. Anderson of Forth Worth and countless other dealers and tradesmen, many of whom could have books dedicated to them alone. 200 pages with more than 1,200 listings and over 700 black & white photographs.

Hardcover, 8.5"x11", printed on heavy, coated paper.
