By searching this forum I found out, that there has no one posted this. Mendel L. Peterson has listed and photographed historic cannons from several countries, high interesting for anyone who wants to build his warship guns correctly.

The files are too big to set them herein, just type

"Mendel L. Peterson Large green Album" in your browser, the four PDFs are the ones I mean

Hi Marcus

 

I`ve saved them all, and placed at my dropbox, with some more original stuff about historic artillery. Whoever wants it, please send PM.

Gerhard,

Wunderbar! Downloaded, many thanks.  I have been looking for 'the rules' about the size and position of regal emblems/monograms on English cannons and all arrows point to Peterson.  If it is in there I will post the results.

I believe the files were originally hosted and available for downloading by a website promoting tourism and diving in Bermuda. I have contacted them and do not believe they plan to put them back online: they politely offered to sell me a hard copy (vol 1) from their tourist centre bookshop.

Now to get comfortable and view a thousand pages …

 

Regards,

Bruce

Hi hobbydoor

 

That would be great, so we could have the full set of the green albums! I`ve missed them as I downloaded the parts I have, but there were no link to find for them. Naturally I would be interested in the marks of Austria and Germany, but all the other volumes too!

 

Best regards

Gerhard

Hi druxey

 

I just "fell" over it by searching for marks of prussian cannons, did not find them but the green albums..............

More about the prussian guns is to be found in the files called "Kameke". Feel ALL free to save the albums and the other files on your PC! That are the things that should be saved by so many as possible!

 

Best regards

Gerhard

Hi Eberhard

 

I expected that there must be much more of Kameke, but did not find all of it! If you would have links for us could be really helpful!

 

Best regards

Gerhard, according to the dates on the files, it is about 3.5 years ago since I downloaded them. I did not keep the URLs. However, if you search in Google with 'Kameke 1837' they should come up.
