An Original WW1 Clerget 9B & 9BF - instructions and list of parts handbook.
Dated - 1917.
A very nice example of a correct period handbook, by Gwynnes Ltd - Hammersmith
& Chiswick, London, W.
Often copied and reprinted, original versions are very difficult to source.
The handbook is in overall good condition with all pages firm and intact.
There are some light 'oiled browsing' markings to the pages - as to be expected for
a well used contemporary handbook.
Giving full details of engine operation, adjustment & list of spare parts.
Both outer covers slightly faded blue / black leather pattern- 'reptile skin' embossed.
