I already own the George Madis Winchester Book, which is certainly the definitive work on the subject, as well as "the first winchester", a very informative study of the 1866.
The collectors only series was more or less a reader's digest version on Madis' book, but without the great illustrations. Certainy not meant to entertain, but to inform, I did find the drawings a bit crude, and think they could have easily been replaced with photography which would make for a far more enjoyable reference book.
They are, however, very well laid-out, and easy to find the basic information you may be seeking. Certainly the format does not allow for a great deal of detail regarding the vast numbers of variations available for most models, which, at least to me, is the most interesting part of collecting Winchesters.
Myself I found that it filled the gaps that some other publications didn't quite cover.They were very good,but this book covers it all.

thanks amazon for your help and direction
Très peu d'illustrations mais une quantité impressionnante de détails sur ces armes et leur évolution.
