When I saw this book advertized a week ago I went to Amazon immediately and ordered one. It came March 2, 12. It is a very large book with fine paper and illustrations. What it is not is a book primarily about Rigby firearms. It focuses on 7 people of historical significance who used or may have used Rigby firearms. Interesting stuff indeed, but not what I expected or wanted.
I read the book description before I ordered and it is accurate. Just know that if you are looking for a volume about Rigby's like Jon Speed's book on Mauser rifles, this ain't it. Nice book, but not mainly about Rigby firearms.
