Reserved one as well!
I had heard that he was working on an A. Henry book.
Hope he has good information on the take down falling blocks. I sure would like to know more about how mine came about and I probably should have contacted him on it.

In the six weeks since Alexander Henry Rifle Maker was made available to order, over half of the 750 copies have been sold !

This is quite extraordinary, and has proved to be Donald Dallas' fastest selling book.

I'm very pleased at how well the story of my great great grandfather's life and career has been received.

The most interest outside of the UK has been in the US and Australia, but also Canada, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Hungary, South Africa and New Zealand.

Thanks all round.
