Original Savage Arms Co. Catalog - Circa 1900 - Rifle, Firearm, Gun Collectible For Sale
This is a vintage Savage Arms Co. catalog. The first page (picture 2) is marked 1900/Savage Arms Company/ Manufacturers of High-Grade Hammerless Military, Sporting Rifles and Carbines/Utica, New York, U.S. America. The manual has a total of 56 pages. Some of the page perforations at the top haven't been separated.
It is not marked as a reprint, so to the best of my knowledge it is original. Similar 1900 manuals have a mounted deer head and rifle that go through the logo. If you look at the close-ups in photos 2 and 3, you can see the blank spots in the "S" and "Co" where the deer and rifle were once located. They appear to have rubbed off.
The overall condition is good to fair. The cover is loose and has separated from the pages. The pages may have originally been bound to the cover, but it appears someone stapled them together at a later date. The cover has wear including dirty spots, creases and small rips. Some of the pages have dirty spots, creases and some foxing. One page has a rip under the perforation. However, most pages are flat and in good condition minus edge wear and some yellowing due to age (see photos 4 - 11 for an idea of average page condition).
The contents include:
- Photos of Savage 1899 rifle models
- Penetration power
- Description of system
- Loading of the system
- Firing and safety mechanism
- To dismount/assemble
- Component parts (photo and price list)
- Important information
- Savage cartridges (.303)
- Advantages of smokeless powder
- Front, rear, peep sights
- Telescopes & reloading tools
- Letters from customers dated 1899
The last page is marked with the name of the printer: Griffith, Axtell & Cady Co., Printers and Embossers, Holyoke, Mass.
