Classic Books On Sale
B001.) The American Bayonet by Albert N. Hardin
Still the standard reference book on United States Bayonets. This is the one all others are measured by. Hardin has done all the research for us on the American bayonet and to date little has been found to add to this work. It is dated with little coverage on the M7 but prior to that is all you want to know. Last printed in 1987 it is very rare to find on the market today. Excellent Condition $100.00
B004.) Bayonets from Janzen's Notebook, by Jerry Janzen
When researching a bayonet Janzen's Notebook is the one I reach for. His layout by country and era is extremely easy to use. Line drawings and simple text accompany each bayonet included. Jerry has also indexed his entries to cross over into Kiesling and Hardin numbers. A wonderful book on bayonets and one of the few still in print. A must have for any bayonet collectors.
Just out, this book is now out of print and the publisher is also out of stock. The remaining few left in inventories at book sellers are all that are left of one of the most useful book on bayonets published. If you were ever thinking about purchasing one, now is the time!! $100.00
