The Ned Roberts book is a good read. He is the Roberts in 257 Roberts cartridge fame.

"The Muzzle-Loading Cap Lock Rifle"

I'm guessing this is the one you refer to, doggoner?

I have it, and it is a great read with lots of extremely "great" information and history of the Cap lock Rifles... Highly Recommend!!!  :hairy

That's the one. It has a good bit of blackpowder lore in it as I remember. I enjoyed the read.

my two newest arrivals...

The Madison Grant book is signed and the Contemporary Makers was still wrapped in plastic wrap. It's amazing what you can find on Ebay.

In Spotted Bull's Posting of web-sites with good reading, I highly recommend the following:

https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=uva.x001497897&view=1up&seq=11

Eli Whitney is know best for his invention of the Cotton Gin, and the labor-saving hours following this invention for those in the South.
However, Eli Whitney was not only an inventor, with many of his ideas stolen before the Patent was granted, but he was also a Manufacturer of interchangeable parts for early Muskets and handguns.
He described himself as a "Progressive Manufacturer", and worked with most of the Firearm Industry of the time.
These contracts were secured not by mass production alone, but the precision fit, which required little to no hand adjustment if, and when a replacement was needed.

A long but very good read!
Thanks go out to Spotted Bull for this extremely interesting reading.

I skimmed through that one rather quickly to make sure I wanted to post it. But I do hope I have time to go back and read it thoroughly.

Folks all of this info will be moved to our new Book and Refernces section soon.

I luv the idea of a TMA Lending Library!" Not only would it help make a lot of books available to all of us. it has another benefit as well.

The TMA Lending Library could be made available only to "Paying Members." This would be yet another incentive for folks to become paid members. Having access to quality books would be far more valuable than our membership fee.
