    That is an excellent book I highly recommend it.

    I first bought a copy in French at the Louisville gun show, I think in 1999, and later bought a copy in English. This book was my first introduction to the work of Alain Lovenberg. I couldn't believe my eyes when I looked at the large images of the Napoleon gun!!!

    Thanks to the book I ended up visiting the Museum of Nature and Hunting in Paris where many of the antique guns pictured reside.

    Last year I had the privilidge of meeting the author, Claude Gaier at the IWA show in Nuremberg. He is a fine gentleman and an authority on fine guns.

    I still have my copy written in French and it is in new condition. If someone would like to have it, I will sell it for $40.USD plus postage. I know from sending my other books to Europe that it is pretty expensive but I think the book would be worth it. I might add that you don't need to speak French to enjoy the book as it is mostly pictorial though Amazon seems to have plenty of English versions.

    Send a PM if you want the book.

    Bonjour, Roger,

    I am posting this here because the site claims that your mailbox is full, and it won't accept my pm.

    The check for $46 goes into the mail today.

    Please write me a little note on the flyleaf, just for old time's sake.

    Thanks, Mike! I'm sure you'll enjoy the book.

    I cleared off a few messages in my inbox.
