Xii, 232 pages, plates, cloth, very good. From the library of Admiral Henry Sturgis Morgan (great grandson of J. P. Morgan) and with his signature. From Wikipedia: "Charles Edward Chapel was a politician and technical writer, best known for his articles and books about firearms. Chapel was born in Manchester, Iowa on 16 May 1904. He studied at the University of Missouri and later at the Naval Academy in Annapolis. He saw active service in Panama, Cuba, Nicaragua, Philippines, and China. He was discharged in 1937 after being wounded. ~ Although he wrote articles on a variety of subjects, most of his books were about firearms, starting with Gun Collecting in 1939. His 1940 book, The Gun Collector's Handbook of Values was one of the first to provide values for non-professionals, and he contributed to later editions for many years. From the 40s until his death, he wrote at least nine books on gun topics. His most well known book, Guns of the Old West, is considered a standard reference for Western firearms studies. ".
