French arquebusier Casimir Lafaucheux may rightfully be called the prophet of a new age of firearms. His invention, in 1833, of the pinfire system opened the door on the concept of practical self-contained ammunition, eventually prompting the development of today's modern center-fire metallic cartridge.

The arrival of Lefauxheux' invention coincided with the coming of great industrial revolutions on both sides of the Atlantic, and with them political and social revolutions as well. Soon countless new types of firearms began appearing in the market. Pinfire revolvers became the requisite sidearm for many leading military powers, and -as revealed for the first time in this new book- they were purchased and issued to many units during the American Civil War, both North and South. Hardcover, 310 pages, black and white photos.
