DD, I'm sure you mean how sharp the images are, etc. but anyway here's the list, which you may already have. Personal opinion, regardless of how nice or not they may look, is that this is an expensive way to go especially if you want any of the Mordecai plates (Artillery for the US Land Service) since you can already either get the AOP booklet, or the National Archives microfilm with all the plates, for a lot less. It does appear he's been into the archives and copied a fair number of drawings that may not be available elsewhere.

It happens that I very recently ordered five of their ordnance drawings which are available only from them. I will let you all know what their quality is on these when they arrive. I was so impressed with that huge Garrison Gin we saw at Fort Point under the Golden Gate Bridge in San Fransisco Harbor, that I just had to know the dimensions of all that hardware.

John,

AOP doesn't have the guns I am looking at and National Archives doesn't have a branch office in Cut Bank where I can spend a couple of days looking for what I want.

He does have material on guns that are not on the published list. You should always ask him before looking elsewhere.
