2 Bill, Pryor Mt. Triggers, plain, double, simple set, bouble set, single set
Author 1991 PhotoCopy Only; Photocopy Manila Folder or Binder Very Good with no dust jacket 
Photocopy only of rare booklet in a manila folder on building triggers with measurements and what appears to be exact scaled diagrams for building various triggers. These schematics appear to be for early flintlock and percussion type rifles. There is a page showing the various weapons that used set triggers including: Crossbow, Wheellock, Jaeger, Long Rifle including Kentucky, Plains Rifle, and Sporting Rifle. The specific schematics that has the measurements do not name the rifle, but measurements are given for the Single Set Trigger, the Double Set trigger, and illustrations of Double Trigger, Single set, and Compound Single Set. There is a page dedicated to the Hartford Sharps 1875 Sporting Rifle. The footnote at bottom of that page says "a later, very well made and designed set trigger, suitable for any black powder rifle with minor modifications". It is assumed that since many of the rifles made in the era of the rifles using these triggers may have been handmade thus fitting of the trigger sets were custom for many of the guns. This is a photocopy Only.; Illustrated; 4to 11" - 13" tall; PDF

3 Cole, M. H The skinning knife
Birmingham, AL M.H. Cole 1996 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover As New in As New dust jacket 
In new condition. Never read. Author also published the series on U.S. Military Knives, Bayonets & Machetes in the 1990's and The Best of US Military Knives: Bayonets & Machetes in 2002.Paul Granger wrote a review that says: "M H Cole is a masterful illustrator the likes of which are extremely few and far between. Tragically his books are out of print and difficult to find. "The Skinning Knife" is still available. I would encourage any serious knife collector to aquire a copy if at all possible. It chronicles this vital segment of our nations knife history expertly with fondness and respect. M H Cole is a BLADE magazine Hall of Fame member, and deservedly so. This book is a splendid example of his work and not to be passed over." The author died just prior to release of this book so it is Rare to find as only 300 printed. ; 153 pages; Thomas has.
