OF SORTS FOR PROVINCIALS, AMERICAN WEAPONS OF THE FRENCH AND INDIAN WAR This new book boldly displays the firearms, swords, and accouterments of the American provincial soldiers during the French and Indian War, 1754 1763. Important early antique guns from the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, the Jim Mullins collection, the Wallace Gusler collection, and many private collections are shown in the beautiful photographs by Ryan Gale. Unlike their British counterparts, the American provincials were issued a wide range of weapons from standard British Long Land muskets and carbines to civilian rifles and fowlers. These were often old, used, and in poor condition, guns that were described by British officers as "of sorts for Provincial". These weapons did not come only from British contractors and the Board of Ordnance, but from foreign countries such as Holland, Belgium, and France. Each style of long arm came with a unique bayonet, many of which are shown throughout the book. Printed in landscape format, the 11 x 8-1/2" format allows for beautiful wide color photos, on the fine coated paper. Long guns and swords are shown in wide views, up to 22" wide across-the-gutter. Close-up views of the unique maker's marks, proof marks, top views, and detail views show features rarely revealed. ISBN: 0-9765797-3-1 publish date: 06/30/2009
