WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS CO. CATALOGUE BOOK SET - VOLUMES 1 thru 10  Non-Guns > Books & Magazines
Description: I purchased this originally offered 10 Volume Set in 1991 as a member of the WACA, and its been on my bookshelves ever since then. The set is still virtually like new condition and covers WRA catalogues from 1865-1910. The only volume I basically ever looked through was Volume III and IV because my first love was Model 1886's. The Winchester Repeating Arms Company collected 54 original trade catalogs in 1910 and bound them in (10 leather-bound volumes) for the patent library. When the company was sold to United States Repeating Arms Company in 1981, the collection was discovered and acquired by a Winchester enthusiast.

The set was "reprinted" by Armory Publications in 1991-92 and (included two additional volumes) taking the study up to 1918. The books originally sold then for $75 per copy, or $900 for a 12-volume set. The complete set is out of print and no longer available through Armory Publications.

Example of what is in each Volume for the years covered. Volume I - 1865-1881 and contains the 1865 New Haven Arms Company catalogue with sectioned illustration of the Henry rifle. This is the catalogue with all of the Civil War testimonials about the Henry Rifle. The book also includes seven succeeding Winchester Repeating Arms Company catalogues from 1871 to May 1881.

Beginning in 1875, the catalogues include full-size illustrations of model 1866, 1873, 1876 and the Hotchkiss Repeater. Also included are illustrations of rimfire and centerfire ammunition, sights, and the first loading tool.

Volume 2 - 1882-1885 catalogues... Volume 3 - 1886-1889 catalogues... Volume 4 - 1890-1903 catalogues... Volume 5 - 1894-1895 catalogues... Volume 6 - 1896-1897 catalogues... Volume 7 - 1898-1899 catalogues... Volume 8 - 1900-1902 catalogues... Volume 9 - 1903-1906 catalogues... Volume10 -1907-1910 catalogues...

This set of Catalogues offers a wealth of information and is a must have for Winchester Collectors.
