Another great book I bought recently.
James Reid and his Catskill knuckledusters.

James Reid was a Catskills gunsmith who emigrated from Ireland by way of Scotland. He made a number of different revolvers, but is best known for his line of “My Friend” knuckleduster pepperboxes (or “knucklers”, as he called them). At the height of their popularity, Reid had 17 employees, and made a total of about 23,000 of these guns. They were available in .22, .32, and .41 caliber rimfire cartridges, with both brass and iron frames. A revolver version with a single longer fixed barrel was available by special order.

Testing a bulletproof vest, 1923

The gun players are WH Murphy and his assistant, of the Protective Garment Corporation of New York. By 1923, the Protective Garment Corporation of New York manufactured a light weight vest for police use and they held a live demonstration in DC. The live demonstration took place at the Washington City police headquarters. They are inventors and salesmen trying to convince the police force that these bulletproof vests work and save lives.
The gun they are firing is believed to be a S&W Model 10 Revolver. Mr. Murphy stood less than ten feet (3 m) from the firing gun and took two consecutive .38 round slugs.

Self-Portrait /Archduke Albrecht VII /Cardinal Ferdinand
PETER PAUL RUBENS (1577 - 1640). 1638 /1618 /1635- Oil on canvas

Despite his great successes, Rubens was always ambivalent towards court life. At the beginning of his last period of life, he was largely released from his diplomatic duties. Therefore, he instrumented this age portrait with attributes of the courtly portrait (column, sword and glove), but gave his individual moves more weight than is usual in this type of image.

Interesting is to notice, on the first and third portrait, the typology of gloves portrayed.
