Very nice clean book with no bumps to boards and no names or writing. Only fault is a shadow from a small price sticker that fell off the upper right corner of the half title page. Book is bound in sturdy blue cloth with no print to spine -- just to face board. Book measures 6-1/4" x 9-1/2" and has 95 pages. Topics of chapters are these: Eli Whitney; How To Identify Eli Whitney Flintlock Muskets; Eli Whitney Jr.; New Haven -- Hub of the Arms Industry; The Heroic Age of Invention in New Haven; Simeon North, Patriarch of the United States Pistol Makers; Connecticut Manufacturing Companies Founded in 1767-1862 Still In Business in 1973; The Technology of Intetchangability; and About Eli Whitney Museum. Illustrated throughout. See photos.
