The firearms manufactured on the patents of Henry Oliver Peabody spanned 18 general types or models and totaled over 853,000 arms. In the 1870s the armory of the manufacturer, the Providence Tool Co., was one of the largest in the world. Peabody arms were used by 15 foreign countries and three U.S. states, and saw service in five different foreign wars. Yet the breadth of this history has been little recognized, primarily because the time span of manufacture was only 15 years, and the Providence Tool Co. went bankrupt in 1882, with most of its records lost. This study now provides the historian and arms collector with a more comprehensive history and a better understanding of Henry Peabody's contribution to the American armaments industry.Contained herein are descriptions and histories of all of the Peabody military and sporting arms: the side-hammer rifles and carbines; the muskets converted to breechloading; the Peabody-Martini rifles and carbines, the European made Peabody-Martini copies. Also included are the bayonets for the above military arms. Further, a comprehensive history of the Providence Tool Co. is included, with the arms they produced during the American Civil War: Springfield Model 1861 rifle muskets and Light Cavalry (Model 1860) sabers."Fantastic - will be the world standard for years to come."
