ultra-Rare! ORIGINAL – 1865 HENRY RIFLE CATALOGUE / Brochure

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

This original 43 page Henry Repeating Rifle pamphlet measures approximately 8 5/8 x 5 9/16 and was published in wraps by the New Haven Arms Co. for French speaking distribution. Printed by the New York Franco-American Printing House in 1865, this brochure is an original, ultra-rare French language variation of the, in and of its self, rare 1865 first publication of the Henry catalogue. With substantially the same content as the 1865 English language version the brochure, offers an introduction by Oliver F. Winchester as president of the New Haven Arms Co. and is primarily made up of testimonials written to O. F. Winchester by prominent Civil War military figures. The catalogue offers no fewer than 50 Civil War era dated, detailed testimonials by such familiar and prominent military leaders as Col L. C. Baker, 1st District of Columbia Cavalry, Gen. C. W. Smith and Gen. J. C. Cilly both of the 1st Maine Cavalry are included. The overall condition of this super rare Henry brochure will, with two unfortunate exceptions, rate excellent +, tight at the binding with solid covers (a rarity in period wraps) with no stains, notations, missing or loose pages. Importantly the unfortunate exceptions were brought about when some unknowing soul cut the figure of the Henry Rifle from the cover and tore out a portion of the fold out Henry illustration. Likely restorable by a qualified conservator, we have tipped in removeable facsimile replacements. Issues not to be overlooked certainly, however the subject and ultra-rarity if this important catalogue will make a desirable addition to any antique firearms advertising / catalogue collection or Henry Rifle / early Winchester grouping and will hold special interest for the Civil War arms collector especially the Civil War Cavalry enthusiast. With across the Union military service testimonials, word from prominent leaders of the famous 1st Maine Cavalry will make this rare Civil War vintage Henry Repeating Rifle find especially interesting to collector / historians of that regiment.
