I have been thinking of purchasing the Winchester book of engraving and the Colt engraving book. The best price for an excellent condition book that I can find are on R.L. Wilson's web site. $175 for the Winchester book and $390 for the 2 volume Colt engraving book, and if I want to add the book on fine Colt's add another $100 dollar bill.
Those of you who have these books, are they worth that much money? Is there a less expensive place to buy them? I found a reprint of the Nimsckhe book for $90.00 new but haven't had any luck locating these other books at less cost. Any help will be appreciated.
