Hi everyone. This is my first post. Has anyone else noticed that in G&A magazine, when describing antique firearms, Garry James invariably makes the statement “Furniture was of brass.” This is very strange sentence construction. One would never say “The revolver was of steel” or “My shoes were of leather.” I have long been a student of James’ work. It’s the first thing I read in every issue. But this quirky usage of the English language must cease. Sometimes I lie awake all night thinking about it.
