1905 - 1917 CAVALRY EQUIPMENT AND EQUIPMENTS FOR OFFICERS AND ENLISTED MEN ORDNANCE DEPARTMENT MANUAL – AS REVISED IN 1917 – QUALITY REPRINT:  A quality reprint of  “HORSE EQUIPMENTS AND EQUIPMENTS FOR OFFICERS AND ENLISTED MEN MAY 10, 1905”, as the manual was reprinted in 1917 with all of the equipment and regulation revisions current to that point.   This manual was originally printed in Washington by the Government Printing Office in 1917 and is an exact reproduction of the service manual issued by the U.S. Army to the soldiers at beginning of the involvement of the United States in World War One, making this one of the more important cavalry equipment manuals.     

The manual consists of 55 pages of text describing the various pieces of equipment to include:  the Model 1904 Saddle and Saddle Bags (Second Pattern), saddle cloths, all of the related horse equipment, saber belt, holster, pocketed cartridge belt, cartridge boxes, mess gear, bit, and bridle.  In addition, there are twenty-one additional pages of very detailed illustrated plates that show each item of the soldier’s issue.    

An excellent source of information regarding the issue and wear of this equipment for collector and reenactor alike, and an important addition to the library of any serious student of the US Cavalry.  This copy is brand new and unused.   $20
