The dust jacket is good, light shelf wear at corners where wearing showing.

The fascinating story of the famed Gatling gun and its colorful inventor, Dr. Richard Jordan, is the subject of this arms books. The Gatling gun, capable of firing 200 shots per minute, made its appearance in 1861 during the first year of the Civil War. It has seen action in nearly every conflict since. In 1946 engineers dusted off the old Gatling principle and adapted it to create the 6,000 shot per minute Vulcan Gun that armed U.S. supersonic jet bombers and fighters. The book is meticulously researched and detailed with lie drawings, illustrations and more. The authors had unique first-hand experience with this gun and its history.
