Secondhand VG Cond. Only small tear to dustcover at lower spine.

The elegant but menacing silhouette of the Luger is immediately recognisable as the popular epitome of pre-war German militarism. A conspiracy of book illustrations, Hollywood movies and television plays has ensured that the Luger is the only gun of its type to have entered modern folklore." "The creation of a multi-million-dollar industry has spawned many myths, some of which, through constant repetition, are becoming established as fact. The need for a reliable narrative such as this is as vital now as it was when the first edition of Fred Datig's pioneering The Luger Pistol appeared in 1955." "Told in a highly readable style by one of the world's leading authorities, The Luger Story traces the rise of the Luger from the German 'arms boom' of the 1890s to the present day. Special features include a rarity index and a critical bibliography.

LUGERS AT RANDOM
by: CHARLES KENYON
HARD COVER
Lugers At Random is a great place to start. It describes the basic differences in models and types and shows side by side photographs to help clarify them. It has disassembled guns with individual part names and a brief section on Proof Marks (6 pages). Then it goes right into photographs of Luger pistols. The Accessories chapter of the book is thin compared to what is available for the Luger. Same with the Proof Marks. Also there is no history of the Luger in the book. Of course that is not what this book is designed for. Also the title sums it up pretty well, Lugers at random. There is not much order to this book at least not to a beginner. Once you have learned your Lugers, the ordering makes sense.

Simson Lugers. Tinker & Johnson Simson Lugers. Tinker & Johnson

This book is intended for an expert collector or historian who wants details about the Simson Luger, a gun manufactured predominantly between World War I and World War II in Germany. The authors are themselves collectors and they have amassed a catalog of information on this weapon; the strengths of the books are the extensive digital photos, including close-up images of gun markings, e.g., serial numbers, and the story of the Simson Company, drawn from diverse sources. Another strong point is an even-handed discussion of controversial issues, such as the origin and purpose of some Simson Luger stamps. The weakness of the book is that it is written only for fellow collectors and others familiar with the jargon. Because some important terms are undefined, the novice has to consult other sources for background material. This quibble aside, this book is the most comprehensive to date about this slice of gun history. Amateur experts and collectors often express their intention to "write-the-book" about their given specialty and here we see the results from two men who made good on that promise. 200 PAGES

PISTOLE PARABELLUM - History of the "Luger System"

by Joachim Görtz and Geoffrey L Sturgess

Deluxe 3-Volume slipcased First Edition, 2010
2,014 pages, 1,917 illustrations, most in colour

Comprising an Editor's Preface, Author's Foreword, Introduction, sixty-three chapters of profusely illustrated text plus a Bibliography, Glossary, and comprehensive 34-page Index, this is the most complete and authoritative account ever published of every aspect of the Pistole Parabellum—the world's most collectable handgun.

Volume I discusses and depicts the historical antecedents of the Parabellum with emphasis on the Borchardt C93, and documents the derivation of the Parabellum from the C93. The bulk of the volume is devoted to illustrated descriptions of all Parabellum prototypes and Old and New Model variations as adopted by the Swiss and German militaries and manufactured for foreign contract and commercial sale.

Volume II begins with an in-depth, historical discussion of the four Parabellum production lines (in Germany, Switzerland, and Britain) and all the military, contract and commercial models manufactured by each; the official production and military inspection and procurement procedures, plus an exhaustive, fully-illustrated study of markings (factory internal, proof, acceptance, serial numbers and unit), ending with a chapter on supplementary police safeties and selective-fire conversions.

Volume III covers all the many accessories and ancillaries produced for the Borchardt C93 and the Parabellum, including commercial, military and police manuals; holsters, magazine pouches and holster/stocks; magazines and drums; maintenance accessories; Swiss and German sub-calibre conversions; cases and cartons; and ammunition (7.65mm Borchardt and 7.65mm and 9mm Parabellum), including headstamps, special loadings, and military packaging and labelling.

This is the first and only Luger study to tackle head-on the vexing issue of fakery. The nearly two thousand sharp, clear illustrations in these volumes, mostly in full colour, painstakingly depict and compare the key details of hundreds of genuine examples of exquisite rarity with those of known fakes. In keeping with this as an ongoing theme throughout all three volumes, the exhaustive Index in the back of Volume III directs the reader to over 50 specific entries under the heading "Fakery".
