Descripción Collector Grade Publications, Cobourg, Ontario, Canada, 2010. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. 1st Edition. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. Deluxe 3-Volume slipcased first edition. There are 1,917 illustrations, most in colour. Comprising an Editor's Preface, Author's Foreword, Introduction, sixty-three chapters of profusely illustrated text plus a Bibliography, Glossary, and comprehensive 34-page Index, this is the most complete and authoritative account ever published of every aspect of the Pistole Parabellum - the world's most collectable handgun. Volume I discusses and depicts the historical antecedents of the Parabellum with emphasis on the Borchardt C93, and documents the derivation of the Parabellum from the C93. The bulk of the volume is devoted to illustrated descriptions of all Parabellum prototypes and Old and New Model variations as adopted by the Swiss and German militaries and manufactured for foreign contract and commercial sale. Volume II begins with an in-depth, historical discussion of the four Parabellum production lines (in Germany, Switzerland, and Britain) and all the military, contract and commercial models manufactured by each; the official production and military inspection and procurement procedures, plus an exhaustive, fully-illustrated study of markings (factory internal, proof, acceptance, serial numbers and unit), ending with a chapter on supplementary police safeties and selective-fire conversions. Volume III covers all the many accessories and ancillaries produced for the Borchardt C93 and the Parabellum, including commercial, military and police manuals; holsters, magazine pouches and holster/stocks; magazines and drums; maintenance accessories; Swiss and German sub-calibre conversions; cases and cartons; and ammunition (7.65mm Borchardt and 7.65mm and 9mm Parabellum), including headstamps, special loadings, and military packaging and labelling. This is the first and only Luger study to tackle head-on the vexing issue of fakery. The nearly two thousand sharp, clear illustrations in these volumes, mostly in full colour, painstakingly depict and compare the key details of hundreds of genuine examples of exquisite rarity with those of known fakes. In keeping with this as an ongoing theme throughout all three volumes, the exhaustive Index in the back of Volume III directs the reader to over 50 specific entries under the heading "Fakery".

Descripción Collector Grade Publications, 2010. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. 1st Edition... Three huge hard bound volumes, each measuring 8.75" x 11.25", in a pictorial slipcase. 1930 pages. Over 1900 illustrations. Sharp, detailed photographs that clearly show the markings on the guns. This massive new slipcased three-volume set is the most complete and authoritative account ever published of every facet of Parabellum history - Its antecedents; its derivation from the Borchardt C93; all models (prototype, German military , foreign contract and commercial); all manufacturers; the official production procedure; military procurement; markings (factory internal, proof, acceptance, serial numbers, and unit); police safeties and selective-fire conversions; manuals; holsters and holster/stocks; magazines and drums; maintenance accessories; sub-caliber conversions; cases and cartons; ammunition, and more. The basis for coverage of the military models is a new expanded English-language translation of the celebrated book Die Pistole 08 by the late Joachim Gortz. This is the first and only Luger study to come to grips with the vexing issue of fakery. This has been a particularly grievous problem for advanced Luger collectors in the past, because the items in question are often so rare as to be virtually impossible to compare with similar speciments of known genuinity in order to confirm their authenticity. This dire situation has been very considerably alleviated by the meticulous text and the nearly two thousand sharp, clear illustrations, mostly in full colour, which painstakingly depict and compare the key details of hundreds of genuine examples of exquisite rarity with those of known fakes. The exhaustive Index in Volume III directs the reader to over 50 specific entries under the heading "Fakery". Here is carte blanche to perhaps the most comprehensive private collection of German cartridge small arms ever assembled, including Parabellums and related artefacts and documents worth conservatively several millions of dollars. A truly fantastic and outstanding set of reference books for less than 20 cents per page. Language: eng Language: eng Language: eng. Nº de ref. de la librería 4611
