Sports Equipment: Webster's Timeline History, 1591 - 2007

Sports Equipment: Webster's Timeline History, 1591 - 2007

Webster's bibliographic and event-based timelines are comprehensive in scope, covering virtually all topics, geographic locations and people. They do so from a linguistic point of view, and in the case of this book, the focus is on "Sports Equipment," including when used in literature (e.g. all authors that might have Sports Equipment in their name). As such, this book represents the largest compilation of timeline events associated with Sports Equipment when it is used in proper noun form. Webster's timelines cover bibliographic citations, patented inventions, as well as non-conventional and alternative meanings which capture ambiguities in usage. These furthermore cover all parts of speech (possessive, institutional usage, geographic usage) and contexts, including pop culture, the arts, social sciences (linguistics, history, geography, economics, sociology, political science), business, computer science, literature, law, medicine, psychology, mathematics, chemistry, physics, biology and other physical sciences. This "data dump" results in a comprehensive set of entries for a bibliographic and/or event-based timeline on the proper name Sports Equipment, since editorial decisions to include or exclude events is purely a linguistic process. The resulting entries are used under license or with permission, used under "fair use" conditions, used in agreement with the original authors, or are in the public domain.

Mercedes-Benz 710 SS 38/250 Sindelfingen Sports Tourer 1930

Mercedes-Benz 710 SS 38/250 Sindelfingen Sports Tourer 1930

The companies Daimler (under chief engineer Paul Daimler) and Benz emerged 1926 to form one of the most successful automobile companies in history. In 1923, genious engineer Ferdinand Porsche (Austro Daimler) was persuaded to join Mercedes-Benz to develop a new generation of high-performance automobiles. His new car featured a supercharged engine in the 630 K, replaced 1927 by the new 680 S with a much improved lower chassis and further interesting innovations.
It is the 710 SS introduced in 1928 that was truly unique. The aluminium 6-cylinder engine was upgraded with aluminium pistons, larger valves and greater horsepower (225-250 HP) and the complete car was further improved to create ultimate performance. The 710 SS (for Super Sport) was claimed to be the fastest sportscar, tested by Motor magazine in 1931 on the Brooklands circuit and clocked 103 miles per hour with full road equipment and not yet fully run in. Highly sought-after by the wealthy clientele for road use, the 710 SS was equally successful in competition. The short chassis version 710 SSK (Super Sport Kurz) became legendary especially with driver Caracciola (the Rainmaster) who was victorious in all major races such as the Ulster Trophy, The Avus, the Eiffel, the Mille Miglia and the Monte-Carlo. In spite of its weight, the 710 SSK achieved lap times to match the fastest Alfa Romeo and Bugatti Grand Prix cars of that period.
This particular car, 710 SS Chassis N°36260, is one of the rare and highly sought-after 710 SS Sports Tourer by Sindelfingen. Originally delivered by famous Mercedes-Benz agency Gordon Watney Ltd. (of Brooklands fame) to Captain F.J. Conrad Kruse (director of the Paris Daily Mail) registered GJ 4163, the 710 SS was purchased by a keen Peter Pauling, who (aged 22) had come to England from California to study for his doctorate at Cambridge in 1952. Peter Pauling was the son of the distinguished double Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling. Stored at the house of his mother Ava Helen Pauling in Pasadena after his return to the US in 1956, the 710 SS was eventually discovered by well-known Los Angeles collector William Tishman in 1964 who gradually persuaded the Pauling family to part with the car. William Tishman undertook a comprehensive restoration with a view to fully enjoy the car's extraordinary performance. In this carefully rebuilt form, the car became well-known in the American Concours d'Elegance world, but the perfectly condition of his car did not stop Tishman from racing the car at Laguna Seca in 1978. Today the car forms part of a private European collection.
The condition of the car is superb in every respect, with coachwork and interior having sympathetically aged to a lovely patina. A huge and fully complete owner and restoration history comes with the car, as do copies of the original British logbook and subsequent registration documents, as well as the FIVA-Card.
A most rare, extremely authentic, totally original and well-sorted prewer Touring Mercedes-Benz, ideal for touring, and eligible for the Mille Miglia.

Percussion Pistols And Revolvers: History, Performance and Practical Use

In the early transition from the long-lived flintlock system, handgun development closely paralleled that of the long arms. With the advent of the revolving pistols, however; came patents that created monopolies in revolver production and the through-bored cylinder necessary for self-contained metallic cartridges. The caplock revolvers took on a separate evolution and remained state of the art long after the widespread appearance of cartridge firing rifles and shotguns. They rode in the holsters of of explorers and adventurers across the world and granted safe conduct in the back–alleys of the Industrial West right up until the last quarter of the 19th Century.
Handguns possess a mystique distinctly different from that of other firearms. They are tools of personal empowerment-chosen by their owners to provide independence and freedom of movement. In the ambitious, optimistic early years of western industrial civilization they were the emblem of liberty and equality and the bane of repressive governments and social movements. Largely because of the traditions that emerged in the time of the caplock pistols and revolvers, they remain so in the early years of the 21st Century.
