Maine Made Guns & Their Makers by Dwight B. Demeritt, Jr.


Maine Made Guns & Their Makers by Dwight B. Demeritt, Jr.

The long and rich history of Maine's firearms is a story of highly skilled Yankee gunsmiths, inventors, colorful characters, and entrepreneurs. It is also a story that adds to our understanding of Maine's industrial history and the significant role of Maine's gun makers during the Indian wars, the Industrial Revolution, and the Civil War. This revised, updated edition includes modern companies like Saco Defense, Inc., and the parallel history of Maine-made cannons and shells.

With over 400 illustrations and extensive appendices, Maine Made Guns & Their Makers is an invaluable resource for the collector or anyone interested in Maine's extraordinary history.

Tilbury House® is an independent publishing company that began about thirty years ago as Harpswell Press, publishing Maine books. They grew slowly, adding some children's books, and in 1990 merged with another small publisher, the Dog Ear Press, to become Tilbury House, Publishers.

Their children's book division took off with the publication of Talking Walls, and it has continued to publish award-winning children's picture books about cultural diversity, social justice, nature, and the environment. Tilbury's adult books are primarily regional non-fiction, mostly history, some maritime history, and some environmental work. But every once in a while something different comes up that they can't resist, and they publish that too!
