W.J. George, Sporting Gun & Ammunition Manufacturer, New Illustrated Price List of Sporting Guns, Rifles, Revolvers, Walking Stick and Air Guns, Pistols, Ammunition, Loading Machines, Bags, Covers, Traps, &c., &c.
Highly attractive Edwardian sporting gunmaker’s list, uncommon, OCLC with 3 locations only, BL, Winterthur Museum, and the Hagley Museum, Wilmington, these two representing an odd bibliographic coincidence in Delaware. George’s had their “Office and Show Room”, and a workshop in Snargate Street, and a “Cartridge Store and Loading Room” at Five Post Lane. The company seems to have expanded into cycles and “motors” in the next few years, Mr. W.J. George being a stalwart of the local bicycle club.
