Bone Tipped & Banded Horns: Regional Characteristics of Professionally Made Powder Horns - Volume II is the highly anticipated second volume of
Jay Hopkins' Bone Tipped & Banded Horns books. Those who have seen the contents of Volume II feel this edition is even better and more interesting than
the first volume, thus making Volume II a "must have book" for your personal library. All collectors of powder horns and Kentucky rifles will greatly
benefit from having this book in their library. This second volume continues his 50-year study concentrating on regional characteristics of professionally
made powder horns from the southern US.
It has been significantly augmented by collaboration and cooperation with other collectors, students, and museums. The focus
of Volume II is on powder horns of the south including North Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, Louisiana,
and Texas. This volume will be hardbound with approximately 320 pages, over 140 powder horns featured and over 600 full color images. Each horn will be
illustrated, measured in multiple parameters and the various materials and woods identified. Then, pertinent history and biographical information will be included,
as well as an analysis of the horn and its origin.
