A Catalogue of Early Pennsylvania and Other Firearms and Edged Weapons at "Restless Oaks"

Book cover
For years this writer's aim was to visualize the armed Pennsylvanian of earlier days; how he went forth to fight his Indian foe, to slay the bison, moose, elk and smaller game, and on his expeditions to the fields of love: where his firearms and edged weapons originated. To create the living man his arms must be secured, and gradually the present collection was assembled. And he lived again, dark, grim, bearded, the spirit of lofty pines and hemlocks among which he spent his days, always plotting to kill something. Many of the arms, if they could speak, what tales of war, the chase, and love adventure they could tell!
By Henry Wharton Shoemaker (1880-1958), an outstanding American folklorist, historian, writer and publisher.
