war dog
Abby and I were proud to attend the Christmas Wreath Dedication at the Michigan War Dog Cemetery. A couple of the pictures are from earlier trips because they came out better. Here is the story-
The War Dog - Military War Dogs have been fighting alongside our men and women in uniform in many of our conflicts. In WWI they were called Ambulance Dogs, they were trained to find wounded soldiers in No-Man’s land after a frontal attack. In WWII they were trained in many disciplines; scout, tracker, sentry and messenger. According to Military records War Dogs saved 15,000 lives during this conflict.
In Korea there were only one War Dog platoon deployed consisting of about 28 dogs. Of those 28 dogs on patrol, thousands of ambushes were averted. Thousands of lives were saved.
Vietnam K9 Memorial Wall
viet nam
During the Vietnam War 4,234 “War Dogs” were deployed. They had one main mission, to save the lives of our men and women in uniform. They did ceremonytheir job well, it is estimated they saved over 10,000 lives during this war. As the War was winding down an order came through that all the troops would be pulling out, the troops were ecstatic. All the dog handlers ran to the kennels and hugged their battle buddy and said “Buddy we’re going home”. A few weeks later an order came down from Washington DC to leave the dogs. The handlers couldn’t believe it, however the order stood, sad but true.
The problem was the K9’s were classified as equipment and it was customary when the units are being pulled out and excess equipment is not needed any where else it was left behind. With the dogs being classified as “Equipment” they fell under that rule.
dogTo honor these well trained K9’s that saved so many lives the Michigan War Dog Memorial erected a Black Granite Wall with all their names and tattoo numbers to recognize them for their service and sacrifice to our country. They will be forever memorized and will “Never be Forgotten”.
Today the War Dog is referred to as Military Working Dog (MWD)
During our visit to pay respects to the dogs who savedJack so many lives we were overwhelmed by the care and respect this cemetery offers to our faithful servants. We should also thank the dedicated people who maintain the cemetery. Some of the headstones date back to the first World War and carry forward from there. The oldest stones, having been made of Michigan sandstone, eroded over the last century and are difficult to photograph, but an example from 1939 is to the right. We should add that there are police K9 dogs, real service dogs and others who served noble purposes buried here along with the war dogs. All are deserving.

Days of Our Lives

Understanding Engineers 1
Two engineering students were riding bicycles across a university campus when one v8said, "Where did you get the great bike?"
The second engineer replied, "Well, I was walking yesterday, minding my own business, when a beautiful woman rode up on this bike, threw it to the ground, took off all her clothes and said, "Take what you want."
The first engineer nodded approvingly and said, "Good choice: The clothes probably wouldn't have fitted you anyway."
Understanding Engineers 2
To the optimist, the glass is half-full. To the pessimist, the glass is half-empty.
To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.
Understanding Engineers 3
A priest, a doctor, and an engineer were waiting one morning for a particularly slow group of golfers.
The engineer fumed, "What's with those guys? We've been waiting for fifteen minutes!"
The doctor chimed in, "I don't think I've ever seen such inept golf!"
The priest said, "Here comes the green-keeper. Let's have a word with him." He said, "Hello George, What's wrong with that group ahead of us? They're rather slow, aren't they?"
The green-keeper replied, "Oh, yes. That's a group of blind firemen. They lost their sight saving our clubhouse from a fire last year, so we always let them play for free anytime!"
The group fell silent for a moment.
The priest said, "That's so sad. I'll say a special prayer for them tonight."
The doctor said, "Good idea. I'll contact my ophthalmologist colleague and see if here's anything he can do for them."
The engineer said, "Why can't they play at night?"
Understanding Engineers 4
What is the difference between mechanical engineers and civil engineers?esso
Mechanical engineers build weapons. Civil engineers build targets.
Understanding Engineers 5
The graduate with a Science degree asks, "Why does it work?"
The graduate with an Engineering degree asks, "How does it work?"
The graduate with a Commerce degree asks, "How much will it cost?"
The graduate with an Arts degree asks, "Do you want fries with that?
Understanding Engineers 6
Normal people believe that if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Engineers believe that if it ain't broke, it isn't sufficiently complex yet.
Understanding Engineers 7
An engineer was crossing a road one day, when a frog called out to him and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful princess."
He bent over, picked up the frog, and put it in his pocket.
The frog spoke up again and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn back into a beautiful princess and stay with you for one week."
The engineer took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and returned it to the pocket.
The frog then cried out, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess I'll stay with you for one week and do anything you want."
Again, the engineer took the frog out, smiled at it and put it back into his pocket.
Finally, the frog asked, "What's the matter? I've told you I'm a beautiful princess, I'll stay with you for one week and do anything you want. Why won't you kiss me?"
The engineer said, "Look, I'm an engineer. I don't have time for a girlfriend. But a talking frog - now that's cool."
And Finally...
Understanding Engineers 8
Two engineers were standing at the base of a flagpole, looking at its top. A woman walked by and asked what they were doing
"We're supposed to find the height of this flagpole," said Steve, "but we don't have a ladder."
The woman took a pliers from her purse, loosened a couple of bolts, and laid the pole down on the ground. Then she took a tape measure from her purse, took a measurement, announced, “21 feet," and walked away.
One engineer shook his head and laughed, "A lot of good that does us. We ask for the height and she gives us the length!"
Both engineers have since quit their engineering jobs and have been elected to Congress.

* I received no notification of my order, why. Are you there?
You ordered on Saturday evening. it is now Monday morning. We took a day off, but thanks for all your emails.

*I've ordered manuals from you in the past. They was always nicely binded. This one wasn't binded. Why?
It has too few pages to run through the binder.
*My package finally arrived, how do you explain that it took 10 days to get from Michigan to Illinois, all my other mail gets delivered promptly...
We are slow and the PO is even slower.
rem 1910I received the Remington 1910 catalogue from you today but I am very disappointed with the quality of production. You can easily see from the attached notated image of the piece that the binding is clearly crooked and the cover is surrounded by white. Your quality control is seriously lacking for such a poor piece to emanate from your factory, I expected much better from what I've heard about your company. Please send me a replacement copy by return mail. How do you explain this? Frank Bender
Well, from the image you sent, it looks to me as though you placed the book on the table at an angle. Abby
What are you some sort of wiseass? I'll never recommend your company and will tell all my online friends to pass your comany by. What lousy customer service.

Abby, I need load data information on Ideal mold 452 66. only listed for one year by Lyman (1962). Do you have this old Lyman manual? Roger
Hi Roger, We might in the stacks of catalogs we haven't processed so far, but right now I can say it isn't in any of the "on-deck" items. Best, Abby
Thank you, keep me advised.
Hi Abby, I’m looking for a manual for a pre WWII (purchased in 1939) Lyman 48 WJS Mo 48Receiver Sight for use on a 1939 Winchester Model 70 (.30 Gov’t ’06), particularly with respect to elevation & windage adjustments. You have a manual for the Lyman 48 Sight but the contents listing does not appear to cover use with the Model 70. Can you advise if your manual would be applicable for my Model 70? Thanks, in advance, for your help. Regards, Vince Dougherty
Hi Vince, Sorry, no mention of the M70. Best, Abby
OK, Thanks
oldHave 6 books in cart give me your best price........Bob, stovecollector (ebay)
Hi Bob, you have been in touch with Rob about these marbleMarble catalogs... a great old Michigan company. We have a store at eBay so we have a fixed price on items. You can request a combined invoice once you have put them in your cart or if that is difficult to do just buy them and I will refund any postage overage on your order. Thanks for your interest... Abby - here in the Mitten of Michigan
Abby; I came across your publication for shotguns through a couple other forums.  I've gotten publications from your group before, and since the listing for the above subject mentioned contacting you, I thought I would. I have an "XLCR" Side-by-Side 12 gauge shotgun that I need to disassemble and repair.  This is a "W. Bingham" shotgun, marked "Cleveland" on the receiver. On your website, for the subject listing, you have this called out as "Bingham, W. & Co." Is it worth getting the entire book for the section on the Bingham shotgun?  Is it detailed enough to help me with the disassembly and parts needed to repair it? Thank you in advance, Steve McNany
Hi Steve, The quick answer is no. Bingham was a sporting goods dealer between 1880 and 1910 and, as such, they never made guns. What you probably have is a gun purchased from a maker that Bingham had imprinted with their name, much the same way as Sears sold guns. Unfortunately, I have no idea who made them for Bingham. Sorry, Abby
Hello, Sorry for late notice did get item. recovering from covid. Thanks Jeff Shaw
Dear Jeff, We wish you a speedy and full recovery, thanks for your note. Rob
I came across these (old catalogs and manuals) while attending an auction. They werephone left inside of a shotgun case that I purchased. If you would like for me to mail them to you so that you may scan and add them to your inventory, I will. Let me know what you decide. Please keep up the work that you are doing. Chris
Hi Chris, Thanks for your generous offer. We are in the process of putting together a new website so, at the moment, we are not adding content. So, if you need them back, this isn't the best time. If you don't want them returned, then yes, please, we would love to add them to our to-do box. We really appreciate your support, Cheers, Rob
Dear cornellpubs, Do you have parts for Remington woodsmaster 81 . I am looking for tag screw for this gun -mortonm3 (ebay)
Sorry, we are publishers, we don't sell parts. Rob for cornellpubs
Hi Abby, bit of a strange one but I think I ordered a gun book from you But not received it yet My memory is not what it was so I can’t even remember the name of the book can you look on your computer thanks My full name is Keith race.
Hi Keith, we aren’t shipping overseas at present so we refunded your payment, We are sorry and hope things improve so we are not asked by foreign governments to collect their duty and taxes for them.

RE:  Belgian Gunmakers (Belgun) Association 1950 Catalog Hi, is there any mention of Antonie Joseph DeFourny gunmakers in the book? Thanks.
Wilmurt (ebay)
Belgun Assn sold guns under the name Belgun so there are no makers identified. Belgian shotguns were often a cottage industry with individuals making parts that were then assembled into a gun sold by all.
brno RE: BRNO ZKM 611 .22 Mag Semi-Auto Rifle Manual, @8.95   Really disappointed no parts list or exploded  diagram. Harlan Prine.
Harlan, Oh dear Lord, how incredibly sad! Unfortunately, that is the way the original was printed, we just scanned it. Abby would have mentioned a parts list and view in the index if it had one. Rob
breechRE: Breechloading Shotguns 1860-1940 Vol. II G-P Hello, Can you tell me if there is any info on Lefever and Iver Johnson? Thank you, All the best, Tracy at auctionday
Hi Tracy, Please let me know what sort of information you are seeking. With questions like yours, we could go back and forth a lot unless I know. Cheers, Rob for cornellpubs

In your description of the book it says that some arms company's are overlooked completely, I have the Uncle Dan Lefever book, and that has lots of good info, always looking for anything that can be added to that. I have nothing on Iver Johnson but would welcome serial number info for older DB shotguns, Hope that helps and thanks for getting back to me, All the best Tracy
iverTracy, Joe Vorisek also wrote Iver Johnson Arms & Cycle Works, A Short Illustrated History- which should be better for you than his big book. Regarding Lefever, I think Uncle Dan is a better source, but if you buy the IJ book, send along a note and I'll print the Lefever section of the Breechloaders and include it. Unless you are interested in a big variety of shotguns, I don't recommend the big one. Cheers, Rob for cornellpubs
Thanks for all your help Rob, I really appreciate it, Just bought the Iver Johnson book, sounds like just the ticket. Thank you, hope you make tons of money on ebay. All the best Tracy
madsenHi, There’s quite a few manuals on the Madsen I’d like to order and just wanted to check you were happy to post to England? All the best. Gyles
Hello Gyles, I am sorry to say we aren't shipping to UK through our website. The maze of regulations and requirements that we collect your import duties are, unfortunately, impenetrable. However, many of our publications are available internationally through ebay. They charge and arm and a leg for shipping though. We are in the beginning stages of developing a website to sell PDF versions of our publications so that might be an alternative in a couple of months. Sorry to not have better news. Cheers, Rob
RE:  Handgun Trade Brands, U.S. Mfrs & Dist. 1865-1930 
Hello From Glynnj48 (ebay, of course, ed) VERY DISAPOINTED, The front cover page Faded, No numbers on tradePages, but few number 1s. I can't read Any thing close to the middle, where it is bine together. What happen, I never had and Problems with any other manual from you, like this before. PLEASE, Recheck, PLEASE, let me know, And No Pictures of Guns, and Every thing I look for is UNKNOWN.

I'm sorry you didn't find the book useful. A couple of things, we just reprint what we are given, we didn't write it or do page numbering, that sort of thing. We also didn't do the research so if the Joe Vorisek didn't know something he wrote UNKNOWN, and Joe is dead so I can't ask him for clarification. The cover isn't faded, we used a technique called "transparency" to make the background go from dark at the top to light atr the bottom. Finally, you can open the book completely flat, you won't hurt the binding so you can read near the gutter with no problems.

Now, because you were VERY DISAPPOINTED (we hate that) I asked Abby to refund your money in full. We do all we can to please people but sometimes things don't work out, I hope you understand. Oh, please keep the book, you may find it useful at some point. Cheers, Rob
Hello Just a note that the Bannerman catalog arrived today. AOK. Thanks for keeping the old catalogs alive. Look forward to your next newsletter. Greg Heath
I have a Smith & Wesson, model 10-6, 38 caliber revolver. It was issued to me in serialOctober of 1970 when I began my career in law enforcement. The serial number stamped on the butt of the revolver is to the right. Would you be able to provide some history on the handgun. Please advise of any cost for your research. I thank you in advance for any assistance provided. Respectfully, John Maruffi
Hello John, I'm afraid we don't have information about specific handguns other than what is listed at our website. We aren't really a research company, we just sell reprints of old arms publications, so I don't think we can help you. I will put your note in our newsletter in hopes that someone can point you in the right direction. Cheers, Rob
Abby and Rob, While doing some very rare (for me) house cleaning, I discovered the following original Army field manual: FM 23-41, Basic Field Manual:  Submachine Gun, Caliber .45, M3 (War Department:  30 October 1943). 
The manual itself is of quite small format (about 4” by 8”), but its content of 94 pages is very thorough and comprehensive.  I looked at your list of US military field manuals, and it contains a listing for a 4-page field stripping guide for the M3, but nothing on this scale.
It does not contain any sort of reference to the somewhat improved late war version of the weapon, the M3-A1.  That omission would have been of little practical consequence during the weapons’ period of usage, as the later improvements were largely just simplifications.  I think it’s of some historical documentary significance, however.
As you are likely aware, the M3 submachine gun was nicknamed the “Grease Gun.”  Conceived as a much less expensive and easier to produce alternative to the various pre-war and wartime variants of the Thompson submachine gun, the M3 and M3-A1 guns were produced in large numbers during World War II.  I can speak from personal experience that while it may have appeared rather crude, the M3 was a very robust and reliable weapon.  Production of the M3 ended at the close of WWII, but they remained in widespread use by US forces through the Vietnam War.  I remember hearing of their continued presence aboard US naval vessels and by armored vehicle crews well into the 1980s.  Significant numbers of them remain scattered throughout the “Third World.”
I don’t recall exactly when or how I acquired this manual.  I was, at one point, involved in a project during which I fired all manner of obsolescent US and Soviet man-portable weapons.  Maybe I acquired it at that time.
In any case, as my late life interests center on 19th Century weapons, I’ve no practical use for this manual.  I do think it’s a significant historical document, though.  Would you folks like to have it?  I’ve attached a scan of the manual’s table of contents.  My asking price is quite fair, I think.  For you, it’s free.  I just want to find it a home with someone who will appreciate it.  You were the first to come to mind.  Just let me know one way or the other, and if you want it, I’ll mail it to you. Donald W. Klinko
Hi Don, How very nice to hear from you, you've been around since the very beginning and we appreciate your support and help, thank you. The M3 we certainly should add to the collection and we would very much like to have it to process, thank you for that too. I'm not certain when I'll be able to add it because we are right in the middle of getting a new website, a frustrating, expensive and endless undertaking, but I'll do it as soon as I can. We hope all is well and again thank you for thinking of us. Cheers, Rob
ospRE: Walther Olympia Model OSP Pistol Manual - Is this Owners Manual printed```````` in English? New message to: starfire4047 (ebay)
Yes, see the picture with the ad, you can read the text is in English. Cheers, Rob for cornellpubs
RE: Walther Olympia Model OSP Pistol Manual - Is this manual for the earlier round barrel pistol as shown in your photo of the manual: or is it for the later square barreled version of the pistol? starfire4047 (Ebay)
Well, if the Walther people selected a round barrel photograph to put on the cover, I assume the manual was for the round barrel pistol, don’t you agree? I can’t think why they would put a photo of an older handgun on the cover of a later manual. Abby
Hi. I would be happy to buy maybe 4 for $10 or 5 for a fair price , But $21+ for shipping is obsecenely expensive. Can you Please consider a cheaper method perhaps US Postal service air mail letter under $5 ? Best price for 5 ? Many thanks Siân North Wales UK
Dear Sian, I agree, shipping is awful. But this is the story. The UK (EU, Aust and Canada too) decided last summer to force sellers to collect their import duty and taxes then submit reports, etc.. Each country is different and the regulations and applications are impenetrable. Anyway, despite the fact we, as publishers, appear to be exempt from the law we cannot manage to get a permit for our website.
Anyway, our only alternative is to Use Ebay Global Shipping and ship to Ebay in Kentucky where they take over. Ebay then charges you whatever they want, we have no access to their charges. Our shipping program will not allow us to print postage to addresses abroad because we don't have the appropriate licenses from your customs people. I apologize for the ridiculous cost to ship today but there isn't much we can do about it, but if you can find our website I'll send you a pdf for free! Cheers, Rob for cornellpubs
Dear All. I contacted you earlier today regarding Monkton Farleigh leaflets on eBay and obscene $21 + shipping. Shall I order direct from your website so you can use US Postal service air mail letter under$5 ? Or would you please send a PDF of both sides of the leaflet as you suggested ? Although it says " 1943 " I think that the leaflet is year 2000+
Diolch Thankyou  Siân North Wales UK 

Sian, Of course the piece is of recent printing,1943 refers to wartime vintage of the facilities, even I don't think the War Department would have issued a document about munitions storage entitled "Britain's Biggest Wartime Secret Revealed" during the hostilities.
As I've said repeatedly, we cannot mail to UK using our commercial mail system because we don't have a UK tax authorization number; and we don't stand in line at the PO to mail packages abroad using a personal label to circumvent the UK authorities. So, as promised, attached is a copy for free, please don't mention the extortionate ebay shipping prices again. Rob (ex-RN)
henrySir Do you have a Henry rifle manual available? Jack Vozzo
Hi Jack, This "catalog" contains all they wrote regarding a manual, it is only a couple of paragraphs, but this was before the concept of modern manuals was the norm: Cheers, Abby
Miss Abby, May I copy the forwarded reference for my personal use?  I have just bought a Henry and am making a collection folder.  Please advise if you can suggest supplemental references.  Thank you, Mam.    jack
Sure Jack whatever helps you. Abby
I have ordered your offered Manual. Thank you.   jack
Have you anything similar relating to the LeMat revolver?  I just sent you an order for the Henry reference. Maybe we can include something re LeMat.   jack
Hi Jack, No, nothing period, only catalogs with ads for the modern repros. Best, Abby

Hi Mike, I put Yugo in the search bar at the website and nothing comes up, sorry. Abby
Good day! I was wondering if you have any adverts for soccer (association football) in any of the catalogues. If you have, I would definitely be interested in purchasing. Regards, Ian from Scotland
Hello Ian, I believe many of the reseller catalogs we sell have football gear (soccer), but I have to warn you overseas shipments are extremely expensive so before I do the research to answer your specific question, perhaps you can tell me what your budget is for this project and what years are you most interested in finding the material. I can tell you we are working on a new website that will be able to sell downloadable pdfs. That should happen in the near future. Cheers, Rob for cornellpubs.
Hi Rob. I really appreciate you getting back to me so promptly! My budget is not specific and I tend to buy adverts that I don't already possess, if they are aesthetically pleasing and/or of historical significance. "Twenty five years ago, a friend and I had a book published called "Elegance Borne of Brutality - An Eclectic History of the Football Boot". After marriage(not to each other) and kids and life experience, we're researching for a book on footballs (soccer balls) - "Spheres of Influence". We recently paid $100 dollars for a Crook & Sons (Huddersfield) catalogue as it is possibly the only one in existence. It was shipped from Canada for an additional $30. We've also bought good quality scans of ads for $10. Any ads featuring footballs or football boots would interest us. I hope I'm not being too vague in this response and I hope you can assist us...
All the best, Ian
I sent him a list of US catalogs with Soccer Balls featured.
3pm: Hi,  just wondering when my item will ship. Thanks.
4pm: It takes a few days for us to print, bind and pack our publications. I saw a Webley in the pile that came off one of the printers this morning so I would expect it will ship tomorrow. We do say it takes five days for all that to happen in our ad but don't worry, we are on it! Cheers, Rob for cornellpubs
5am: Hi, are you shipping soon? Also wondering why my 2 items did not ship together to save on shipping. I never received an answer to my email concerning this. Thank you. -airborne951 (Ebay)
11:00 am Hi, Are you shipping soon? Im wondering why my 2 items did not ship together to save on shipping. I never received an answer to my email concerning this. Thank you.

2pm: We are terribly busy, orders seem to have exploded in the last few weeks. So, when orders come in we do our best to print, bind, pack and ship as soon as we can. Sometimes we can't get items from one pile to match those in another pile to combine shipping. But good news, Abby managed to get your two together and they went in the mail yesterday. That means you will get a refund of our portion of postage (to Kentucky) where ebay takes over International shipping. If you paid for two International shipping charges please contact ebay because we have no control over what they do. Cheers, Rob for cornellpubs
Hello cornellnews,  has unsubscribed from your eNewsletter. Reason(s) the user unsubscribed: To many company's trying to contact me. I am 78.
Abby/Rob, I just read your latest newsletter (best entertainment I've had since the pandemic)...particularly the Rants.  I just don't know how you can put up with folks that act like they is too short. I have ordered several items from you and have been most pleased. My best to both of are doing an incredible job...thank you. Park Owens
Dear Don, I got your email and two phone messages about the Gustaf, thank you. The ad says "glossy soft-cover in full color." The color refers to the cover not in to pages inside, if the insides are in color we note that in the ad as well. Unfortunately, the cover of the Gustaf is gray so the word color is a bit misleading, sorry. If you wish to return it we will refund your $4.95. I am sorry for the misunderstanding. Cheers, Rob
Hi Abby, That Hungarian Bank logo and link showed up again (above-ed) your recent news letter. Boy this is strange as I have never dealt with them or anyone in Hungry as well. The article/link to What3Words was not only interesting but very informative, as it even locates our "High Sierra" off-the-grid ranch (much shorted the Lat. Long. description.
Hi Dion, I'm glad what3words works for you, it should work anywhere on the planet, so the next time you get lost in the south 40 you have that with you... if you have phone service, that is! The bank thing I have no idea about but I'll put it in the next newsletter to see if anyone else has the same thing. You might try Malwarebytes, they seem to pick up oddball stuff like that. I think they have a free download. Cheers, Rob
Has anyone else had a Hungarian Bank logo appear above our newsletter? Dion had the same thing last spring?
xxWinchester 1922 Sporting Goods Catalog - Hi, Can you tell me if this catalog has tennis equipment? I'm pretty sure Winchester was selling tennis stuff during the 20's, but it is not listed on your table of contents. I'd love a pic, but can you let me know if the catalog has tennis stuff? Thanks for your consideration  dyvan007 (ebay)
We reprint virtually all the Winchester catalogs from 1873 on and I don't believe any have tennis equipment. We have about 50 other company catalogs that do sell tennis stuff between 1889 and 1939. Rob for cornellpubs
