Default SPF: Walter Roper books and letters

SPF. Original edition, first printings of Pistol and Revolver Shooting (Macmillan, 1945) and Experiments of a Handgunner (Stackpole and Heck, 1949) by Walter Roper. Books contain great articles about Roper's work with stocks (of course), but also with sights, triggers, shooting techniques, and ammo. There is no dust jacket for "Experiments," and the one for "Pistol and Revolver Shooting" is torn in pieces, but the books themselves are in excellent condition with great photos throughout. Along with the books, I will include two letters written by Walter Roper when he was at S&W in 1928, giving advice to a target shooter in Cleveland. Price for both books and letters is $60, shipped U.S. Priority Mail.
