A.W.F. Taylerson papers

INDEX. This is a transcription of about 240 5”x3” Index Cards compiled by the late Tony Taylerson as a Chronological Reference System, assembled from many sources over the years. As a data source it lists events affecting the English, US and European Arms Trade from circa 1760 to late 1871. There is a wealth of detail that was used to produce the famous ‘Revolver’ trilogy which could not be included in the books, for example, the genealogical and census data of the early Birmingham gun makers. This is the first time that his detailed scholarly accessory has seen the light of day, and as such will, it is hoped, prove useful to students of the genre everywhere.
