10 Lenk, Torsten; translated by Urquhart, G. A. Flintlock - its Origin and Development
Bramhall House 1965 1st Edition; 1st Printing Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Green hardback looks never read. Dust shows some soiling. Exhaustive work on the construction, form and decoration of the flintlock by author from the first English translation. "A groundbreaking treatise based on fifteen years of research, Torsten Link’s classic study of the flintlock has been acclaimed for decades as the essential book on the subject. His passion for this historic weapon was almost as remarkable as his precision and his eye for detail. From his post as Director of the Swedish Royal Armory, he traveled far and wide to inspect thousands of rare weapons stored in private collections. His illuminating volume encompasses the development of this essential hunting and fighting tool, and it is without equal as a reference for flintlock collectors, dealers, or owners—or for anyone with an interest in weapons and history." review. ; Photographs & illustrations; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 188 pages
