Chats On Military Curios

by Stanley C. Johnson


Author Stanley C. Johnson opens up this work on collecting military objects with the following, “For centuries past the collection of military curios has been the select pastime of men of title and soldiers of rank. Lately, however, owing to the War and the great spread of interest in all things pertaining to it, the circle of collectors has considerably widened, until to-day few things are more treasured by connoisseurs than the thousand and one souvenirs and emblems which emanate from our Army…With many forms of collecting there is a certain sameness about the things collected which is apt to produce monotony: with military curios, however, the treasures cover so wide a field that no such drawback can exist.”

This new edition is dedicated to the patient faculty and dedicated students of the American Military University, earnest patriots keen on knowledge.
