Very good collection. I don’t know how I would be with another language text. I would probably pick the French just because I know Spanish pretty well and they are in the same family. Anyway, looks like some good reading materials.

Great collection, glad to see others appreciate the reference aid aspect of the collecting. I have several of the titles shown, but what caught my eye was Modern Small Arms by Hogg. I bought that book back in 1987 when I was a kid. It is fun to look at now, as my knowledge has progressed and I noticed things different now.

Thanks guys!. I have a soft spot for the 'Cold War Era' books from the 60's, 70's and 80's.
