HORSTMANN BROS. & COMPANY 1877 CATALOGUE OF MILITARY GOODS WELL ILLUSTRATED:  An excellent reprint of the 32 page catalogue published in 1877 by the famous Horstmann Bros. Military Equipment Company.  Located in Philadelphia, the Horstmann Company was one of the largest purveyors of uniforms, hats, swords, accoutrements and all fashion of military equipment used by United States officers and soldiers, as well as police, firemen, bands, military schools, and state militia units.  Featuring one of the largest offerings of period detailed etching for each item offered, this is a valuable reference to identify some of the more unusual pieces that often appear in the old collections.     

This copy is ex libris from the R. Stephen Dorsey research library and it is in very good condition, showing very little wear.  (0345)  $10
