is a copy of a separate book that was created and updated separately. Contains some different information,
and many of the notes that are difficult to read in Vol 1 reproduced more clearly in Vol 2. Also includes the
case drawings from Catalogs No 1 (1885), No 2 (1891), No 2A (1892) and No 3(1904) which were published

DWM Bullet Drawings Volume 3
Never before available!!! Over 300 pages of the original DWM bullet drawings from about 1908, updated
through 1930s. These drawings were obtained by Fred Datig when he obtained the case drawings
reproduced in Volume 2. This although a few individual pages have been available, like those reproduced in
Volume 1, the vast majority of this information has never been available to most collectors and researchers.
This volume is a goldmine of new information waiting to be mined. Also includes the bullet drawings from
Catalogs No 2 (1891), No 2A (1892) and No 3(1904) as well as a catalog in both French and German that
appears to pre-date Catalog No 2. These catalog extracts are included since they predate this material and
contain at least one bullet not illustrated in the original drawings.

grenades, and on the methods of employment. The 1942 edition illustrates various types of grenades.
Pamphlet 40 contains mostly photos of various German mining weapons and techniques. This
publication is 63 pages in length with two pamphlet pages per page (reproduced full size) and a color

Belgian
Catalogs Volume 1  
Three early Belgian Catalogs. A 35 page Cartoucherie Belge Catalog, probably from about 1925 with
color illustrations of boxes and shotshells and photos of the factory. A 37 page Fabrique Nationale
Catalog from 1928 with color trim illustrating FN products including cartridges (unfortunately pages 17-
22 illustrating guns are missing). Finally there is a copy of a reprint of an early Cartoucheries Russo-
Belges, the predecessor of Cartoucherie Belge, from 1912-1913. The reprint is of relatively poor quality
and the cartridge illustrations lack detail, but still an important catalog (does someone have this original
catalog or a high quality-preferably color copy???). Most pages are printed slightly smaller than actual
size so they fit two per page.
