Hardcover, First Edition 1952 Samworth/Small Arms Technical Publishing 524 pages plus a 12 page catalog at the rear of the book for other classic firearm titles. Good+, no DJ. Moderate shelf/edge wear to green cloth boards with faded gilt titles - corners sharp. Previous owner name and bookplate on inside front cover. No other notes or writing - all pages are clean and crisp. 25 chapters plus appendix. This is the classic book on Varmint Rifles in 22 caliber. If you were a long-range shooter of 22 centerfires (and especially an experimenter with wildcat cartridges) in the 1950s, this was your bible. This is the book that spawned interest in wildcat cartridges and improved ballistics that allowed shooters to score on crows and groundhogs at more than 300 yards by taking factory cartridges and modifying them for better performance and accuracy. Highly Recommended. A solid and still handsome First Edition.LOC
