    It would take multiple volumes to achieve anything similiar with respect to CS material culture.
    There was an attempt to do that called "Wearing the Gray," which did not materialize. This collection
    of essays consists of the chapters written by me for "Wearing the Gray" between 2007-2009. It
    seemed like to time enough had passed to go ahead and publish them for those interested in what
    might have been.

    Thanks for the heads-up, Craig! I love this kind of text and after reading your works on muskets I'm sold on any book you're involved with. And the price is great, too! I hope you come back and update this thread with a URL when the book is available.
