Check out these cool books I received as a gift... several are from the years before the turn of the 20th century (late 1880's).

One of them had a gentleman's hand-written notes about his bluing process on one of the back pages...

Thought you'd enjoy seeing these as much as I do.

Thanks and yes, super cool!! Tons of great and still useful information. The historical context is really great too. Will definitely pass these down to my grandson along with the firearms passed down to me.

Where do you go to check out?

Kidding....they look very interesting.
Truth, I visited my mom in Kentucky this past weekend for HER 65th birthday and she gave me a gift, ha! She acquired this lot of books from a website called "everything but the house". She bid on the lot (a la ebay) and scored these for me. Thanks mom!!

I have a similar collection that I found in an antique store in Hattiesburg, MS, and those books have been invaluable over the years.

Very cool post, OP!
