Engraving of Firearms Parts

Designer Perrier French

Not on view

Made by a little-known engraver named Perrier, this rare and informative print illustrates and names all of the parts found in a flintlock gun. A standard military musket is shown in detail on the left and the decorated parts of a more elaborate civilian hunting gun appear on the right.
