Illustrated trade catalog that begins with a short history of the revolver.
"It is impossible to give here a complete detailed description of the mechanical excellence of Smith & Wesson revolvers, but a few illustrations will show the care and attention given to every piece which enters into the finished arm. But one grade is made, and the material used in the construction of the different parts is the very best for the purpose which can be obtained." - p.10.
