A propos de cet article

512 pages, well illustrated (many in color) , cloth, DJ, very good. 9 by 12 inches. Inscribed by author. From the DJ: "Norman Flayderman, revered expert in antique American arms and a vast range of other Americana for half a century, took up the challenge to produce a correct history of the Bowie knife. The results is this stunning book, the first wholly reliable, richly detailed and truly exhaustive study of the subject." Excerpted from a review by KNIFE WORLD: "While practically all of the preceding books on bowie knives have been essentially picture-books with little text to educate or inform, Flayderman has undertaken the monumental challenge of addressing practically every major facet of bowie knife history in the course of this book (not to mention an awful lot of minor ones. ) From the Sandbar Fight to the Alamo, the English cutlery explosion of the 1830s, the Mexican War to the Civil War and the bowie's decline, if it has to do with the bowie knife, it is probably in here somewhere (and can be readily found in the handy index). Much of the research at its foundation is entirely original and extremely well done, and the opinions that are necessary to such a work are Flayderman? S alone, forged in his sixty-plus years in the arms field. Particularly, credit should be given to the author for addressing the more controversial subjects of bowiedom , anyone who's been reading Knife World for long knows how passionate its enthusiasts can be about this or that bit of minutia!"; Signed by Author.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

From Norm Flayderman, perhaps the best-known name in arms collecting, comes this exciting new book on the Bowie Knife. All we can say is 'You will be astounded...It's great.' The size and quality of this book make it a huge bargain. It is a deluxe edition, printed entirely in color, with hundreds of massive, professional photographs showing every detail of your favorite knives. As an added bonus, the photos also contain a countless selection of some of the best guns and swords that you will ever see - so while this is technically a knife book, it truly has something for everyone. For instance, there is a large chapter on Dueling in America, and the Civil War chapters are a book in and of themselves. This is simply a 'must-buy' purchase for any collector of antique weaponry. You won't be disappointed. 512 pages, 9 inches x 12 inches; Hardcover.

Critique:

'Outstanding...Norm Flayderman is respected internationally...a monumental work which will remain as the standard reference for decades to come.' -- The Gun Report, October 2, 2004

'WOW! The book is astounding...exquisitely composed photographs and delightfully written text...The Bowie Knife is an exemplary study.' -- Man at Arms for the Gun Collector, December 1, 2004

Astounding. Simply astounding! Unlike any other book on the subject... the text [is] a monumental contribution [to our folklore]. -- Military Trader

The knife photographs are outstanding and more than 100 of the full-color photographs are full-page... well-researched, with an extensive bibliography, this book deserves to be on the reference shelf of every knife collector, dealer, museum curator, and Bowie knife devotee. -- Larry S. Sterett
