100 Years of Winchester Cartridge Boxes 1856–1956 by Raymond T. Giles & Daniel L. Shuey
Covering the 100 years that Winchester and its predecessor companies, volcanic Repeating Arms Co., and New Haven Arms Co., produced cartridges in New Haven, this is the first detailed study ever done on Winchester cartridge boxes from the era of the modern gun. Coverage includes all the calibers cataloged for every rifle model from 1856 to 1956. Drawing on never before seen company records and correspondence, as well as interviews with old-time employees, the authors have unearthed a wealth of new and significant information on this under-researched, fast growing aspect of gun-related collectibles. With over 1,400 pictures, all in full color, this book also includes a pricing guide and a rarity guide. It is unlikely that the incredible number of varieties of Winchester cartridge boxes pictured will ever again be assembled for presentation to the collecting public. Whether you want to date your collectible box or determine which box would be appropriate as a contemporary display piece with your Winchester rifle, this is the book to own.
