The CURIOSITY EMPORIUM

Description: BRAND NEW BOOK, Just published. The Book of the Great American Firecracker 1900-1965 with FREE, FULL COLOR POSTER! Just in time for the mighty 4th.

When most people hear the word "firecracker" they think of the cute little inch and a half Chinese ones that come strung together in a brightly colored paper with a cute label. Sadly, today there are no firecrackers made in America or anywhere outside of China. But born into true American tradition, in the days gone by when everything American was made bigger and better came the Great American Firecrackers. Huge 13 inch x 2 inch diameter CANNON CRACKERS, CHERRY BOMBS, M-80's, SILVER SALUTES, BLOCKBUSTERS, DEVIL DOGS, BARREL BOMBS and more. All made in America and all legal to buy and use to celebrate the birth of America on July the 4th. Yes, the Chinese firecrackers had beautiful label art, but so did these American brutes and they were a REAL blast! Americans couldn't get enough of the giant crackers. In 1950, the largest fireworks company in America manufactured 100,000,000, yes that's 100 million large salute type firecrackers for the 4th. And that was just one company out of many! The Great American Firecracker was big business and competition was stiff. The book of Great American Firecrackers is the first book of it's kind to deal exclusively with the American Firecracker industry of the early 20th century...who made them and how, patents and innovations that led to the Cherry Bomb and the Torpedo.... with a special section on collectibles and their values.... stories of chaos, mayhem, of exploding toilets and exploding factories... from coast to coast... and 101 ways to get into trouble with a Cherry Bomb! Tales of the Wild West days of firecrackers that eventually led to them being completely and finally federally outlawed forevermore in 1965. If you love firecrackers and fireworks, grew up before 1965, or just wondered what it was like back then. This unique book is for you.

Book features:

130 pages. Over 150 full color pictures of vintage American firecrackers, boxes and collectibles with a guide to current values. Firecracker identification guide. Over 30 black and white drawings, illustrations, patents and advertisements by the inventors who made them and sold them. FREE! LARGE FULL COLOR POSTER WITH EACH BOOK! Featuring over 75 different salutes, cherry bombs, torpedoes, cannon crackers, barrel bombs, silver salutes from the most dangerous era in American Fireworks. FREE POSTER! While supplies last with book purchase, suitable for framing. HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY TO ALL! KEEP AMERICA FREE!
