Courtesy B.W. Smith -

BC_Bethelhem_Iron001.pdf (3.30 mb)

Interesting item found in the library of the US Army Center of Military History. It appears to be sales book for Buffington-Crozier disappearing gun carriages "built only by the government of the United States of America and by the Bethlehem Iron Company, South Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, U.S.A."

It is dated 1895, and has 15 pages of text in English, three color plates, and one B&W photo.

Perhaps most interesting is that the back half of the booklet is in what appears to be Japanese (OK, it could be Chinese, I'm no linguist). Buffington and Crozier could not profit from sales to their own government, but it appears they attempted to make foreign sales. To the best of my knowledge, no B-C carriages were bought by another country.
