This 330-page hardbound book is printed in full color and was published in 2009. Individual chapters describe in detail the Remington No.1, No.1 1/2, No.2, No.4, No.5 and No.7 rolling block firearms. The No.1 expanded section includes full chapters on the development of the rolling block system, early sporting rifles, engraved and embellished rifles, Creedmoor Long Range rifles, Mid-Range and Short Range rifles, Schuetzen rifles, Bench Rest rifles, and Buffalo rifles. Every model is described in great detail, with over 250 comprehensive color photographs of all important aspects of each rifle. Besides the quality of the text and photography, what sets this book apart is the 12 x 10 inch layout of text and photographs in a series of flowing matrixes designed by well-known graphic artist, Ron Paxton. Norm Flayderman, the noted antique arms authority in writing the Foreword to this book, said, the quality of the photography in this . . . book sets a new standard that all future arms books will be held to. Research on this epic study of one of America s most famous hunting and sporting rifle began twenty-three years ago. Countless trips were made by the author to museums and private gun collections throughout the United States and Great Britain. Mr. Marcot also spent hundreds of hours over the past eighteen years combing through the Remington company archives drawing material from original surviving production, sales and shipping records.
This book has a signature plate including the signatures of author by Roy Marcot, Graphic Design Ron Paxton, and Technical Advisor Jay Lewis.
