Fabulous reference book covering just about every uniform from Fascist Italy during the war, starting with the 1926 Fascist March On Rome. Shocking number of color plates showing military, political, youth, female auxiliary and on and on. Catalog excerpts, detailed text, innumerable photographs and well over 100 color examples of uniforms in wear as well as page after page of various insignia, some of which are quite obscure...
Classic revised edition 1981 hardcover reference book Japanese Swordsmiths by W. M. Hawley is a staple for collectors and not often found offered for sale at a reasonable price. This one has minor staining to the edge of page blocks as seen in attached images. The spine binding is loose by inside leafs have only minor tear. A used example in reasonable condition but pages are clean and bright throughout. Priced accordingly.
Superb reference book on Japanese pistols from the WWII era and earlier. Of course there is an emphasis on the famous Nambu models but it does cover other relevant examples. Very gently used condition; Minor shelf wear with no damage. All pages are crisp and clean with sharp corners. Great reference to have if this matches one's interest. I am charging only $10 more then I paid 22 years ago.
