      A History of the Colt Revolver by Haven and Belden. The Gun and Its Development by Greener. But of all my gun books, the one that brings a smile to my face more quickly than any other is Firearms Curiosa by Lewis Winant. Though out of print, this book is an affordable classic, well worth the time it takes to track down a copy. The Lewis Gun had a respectable post-World War I career, as well. Hemingway wrote about the weapon in his classic novel about guerilla operations during the Spanish Civil War, a war he saw first-hand as a reporter. Republican forces in Spain had many Lewis guns. They either got them as gifts from Soviet Union or captured them from the Nationalists.
