ACCOUTREMENTS OF THE UNITED STATES INFANTRY, RIFLEMEN, AND DRAGOONS, 1834-1839, by R. T. Huntington:  One of a series of well written, heavily researched volumes covering many areas of US military collectables, this paperback volume is a detailed reference which covers the accoutrements in use during an often underreported and under appreciated period of US military history. 

This 58 page paperback covers all of the primary accoutrements belts, belt plates, cartridge boxes, bayonet scabbards, and saddle holsters - issued to the early soldiers. The pieces are well described with historical notes and references, features, special fittings, and markings, and each model is shown with detailed photographs or diagrams. 

This ex-libris soft bound copy is in very good condition, inscribed to Steve Dorsey from the author, and shows very little sign of use or wear, and no damage. There are some passages which are highlighted as Dorsey researched some of his books.  (0914)  $15
