U.S. ARMY HEADGEAR 1854 TO 1902, TWO VOLUME SET PUBLISHED BY THE SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTION by Howell & Kloster:  Issued in 1969, this two volume set was published by the Smithsonian Institution as part of the SI’s efforts to showcase their collections.  Volume One in 75 pages covers the US Army headwear from the tricorne hats of the American Revolution through the Pattern 1851 Cap.  Volume Two in 109 pages begins with the Pattern 1855 Cavalry Hat and covers the headwear on through to the 1895 Forage Cap.  Both volumes are well illustrated with clear, detailed photographs and diagrams from the government records.  Now out of print, this two volume set continues to be a valuable resource for collectors and has become a collector item in its own right.     

These are ex-libris copies that are in excellent “like new” condition, showing no signs of use or wear.  (0902) $80 for the two book set
