Regional Characteristics of Professionally Made Powder Horns
By Jay Hopkins
Published by The Honourable Company of Horners






For any student of powder horns and or the Kentucky rifle, this is a “must have book” for your personal library.  

This first volume of a planned two volume set is the culmination of a 50-year study concentrating on regional characteristics of professionally made powder horns.  It has been significantly augmented by collaboration and cooperation with other collectors, students and museums. The focus is on powder horns of the south including Virginia, North Carolina, West Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, but also includes examples from South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and New England.

Volume 1 is hardbound with approximately 400 pages, over 150 powder horns illustrated and over 700 full color images. Each horn will be illustrated, measured in multiple parameters and the various materials and woods are identified.  Then, pertinent history and biographical information will be included, as well as an analysis of the horn and its likely origin.  This study will provide an excellent framework for future study and clarification.

$100.00, plus $10.00 postage.
Payment by cash, check or money order, made to “HCH”, and mailed to HCH Treasurer , 2210 Acorn Circle, Huntingdon, PA 16652
