Volume I covers from the Paterson and pre-Paterson period through c.1921 (end of the Helfricht period). Volume II commences with Kornbrath, and Glahn, and covers Colt embellished arms from c.1919 through 2000.
Each volume is approximately 500 pages. Large 9" x 12 " vertical (portrait) format with approximately 650 illustrations, most in color.
