Catalogues W.R.A.Co.

The Winchester Repeating Arms Company collected 54 original trade catalogues in 1910 and bound them in 10 leather-bound volumes for the patent library. When the company was sold to United States Repeating Arms Company in 1981, the collection was discovered and acquired by a Winchester enthusiast.

The set was reprinted by Armory Publications in 1991-92 and included two additional volumes taking the study up to 1918. The books originally sold for $75 per copy, or $900 for a 12-volume set. The complete set has been out of print for over 20 years. Recently, a few sets became available from a collector for $1,200 for a complete 12-volume set, shrink-wrapped and still in the original unopened boxes. Contact  if you are interested in purchasing a complete 12-volume set of Catalogues W.R.A.Co.
