Item No. CG-2828
The Devil's Paintbrush
Sir Hiram Maxim's Gun

By Dolf L. Goldsmith

This celebrated study, which has been hailed as "simply the best book ever written about machine guns" is back in a brand-new expanded edition, containing 200 additional pages of text and nearly 300 brand-new illustrations.

The story of the world's first true automatic machine gun begins right at the beginning (with the aid of rare photos and patent drawings of Sir Hiram's original working models), and charts the course to first adoption by the British Army in 1889. In World War I the Maxim earned the dubious distinction of being used in virtually identical versions by both sides. After extensive coverage of Maxim models as made and used in other countries, and the myriad Maxim accessories, the book also includes The Maxim in Depth and The Troubleshooter's Handbook, which explain how the Maxim works while providing many expert tips on troubleshooting and restoring the highly collectible Maxim today.

Hard cover, 8.5" x 11", 584 pages, 819 illustrations.

Price: $79.95
