Description

* Traces the Manhattan background from its formation in 1855 to its succession by the American Standard Tool Company in 1869 * Illustrated with photographs by noted collector Miles W. Standish Manhattan's activities spanned the years 1855 to 1873--an exciting period in American firearms that witnessed the high development of the percussion revolver, its rapid decline in the post-Civil War years, and the emergence of metallic cartridge arms. Substantiated by original records, the author discusses Manhattan's four patents, the connection of the Manhattan .22 caliber revolvers with the early usage of the .22 long cartridges, a lawsuit between Smith & Wesson and Herman Boker & Company, as well as many other aspects of Manhattan's history. A serious work on an American maker, this book constitutes a significant contribution to firearms history and merits a place on the bookshelf of every arms collector and enthusiast.
