1884 - 1904 ORIGINAL ORDNANCE DOCUMENTS TRAPDOORS, M1903 SPRINGFIELD RIFLES, HORSE EQUIPMENT, COLT PISTOLS, ARTILLERY:

These are original printings of US Army Ordnance Department General Orders and Circulars that were at one time bound in volumes by year groups.  The bound volumes in addition to containing the subject matter found in the pages offered here, also contained reams of information of no interest to anyone today and likely of little interest to anyone at the time they were published i.e., the proper techniques in painting structures, grounds keeping, approved leaves of absence for Ordnance personnel, travel approvals, who needed to file which overdue reports, ad nauseum.  These rescued documents of interest range in size from 1 page to in excess of 40 pages each and are printed on 7 by 5 paper page stock.  Each is in excellent, clear, clean condition, with no rips, tears or edge wear and the only marks are the stitching holes where the pages were bound in the volumes.  I have posted one photograph of one document to illustrate the format.  The content or subject matter of each document is listed below in the list organized by date, as well as the price for each depending on the comparative value of the content.
