The book recounts FN¹s rich history like no other. Illustrated with over a thousand photographs, many previously unpublished, and is a visual feast for any FN and Browning collector. For many it will introduce FN not only as the ultimate arms maker but reveal its rich history in bicycle, motorcycle and automobile manufacturing among many other successful product lines. These products, like the arms that bear the FN logo, were examples of technical excellence. FN¹s vehicle products held a number of world speed records, and continue to fuel the passions of motorcycle and automobile collectors. Years of painstaking work are reflected in this massive all-color volume. The authors, Auguste Francotte, Claude Gaier and Robert Karlshausen, have done a magnificent job representing all facets of FN¹s history, including its factories and affiliates such as Winchester and Browning. Many will recognize Mr. Claude Gaier, the well-known arms expert and curator of the Liège Arms Museum. This represents a tremendous bargain, given the volume¹s scope, size, color photography and value as reference material.
