Dillin, John G. W., The Kentucky Rifle (Washington, D.C.: National Rifle Association of America, 1924)
"A study of the origin and development of a purely American type of firearm, together with accurate historical data concerning early Colonial gunsmiths, and profusely illustrated with photographic reproduction of their finest work." Much work has been published in this field since this groundbreaking study, which, however, still carries much interest and is a good starting point for one wishing to explore America's contribution to ethnographic arms.
