This listing is marked SOLD and is no longer available


This is Charles E. Whitelaw's impressive catalogue of Scottish Arms Makers from the 15th century to 1870. It lists basically all known biographical details about all known Scottish arms makers from that period. Quite an amazing reference for Scotophiles, especially those who collect antiques from the era.

This book is somewhat rare, and copies in good condition can be found on the internet between $85 and $600+. Exclamation

This copy is in surprisingly good condition for its age (at least 20 years old, maybe 30), better than many newer books in my library. The dust jacket looks basically brand new, except for the most minor shelf wear. The outside edge of the pages has yellowed a bit from dust (typical) but all the inside pages are in good shape. The inside of the dust jacket has been price clipped (the original price removed so it can be marked up or down without confusing people--common to used books) and a price tag in GBP is above the clipped part. The clipping and price tag don't obscure any text.

Asking $80 + s/h. PayPal preferred (please add 3% of total to cover fees), money orders also accepted.

Happy

Price drop to $70.

That's lower than any copies in its condition on the net (that I've been able to find). To find it cheaper, you'll be dealing with water damage, no dust cover, etc.

If it doesn't sell, I'll simply keep it. So don't expect a bunch of price drops. Happy
