I just read for the first time David Horne's volume 5 Gripopaedia . It is so well done ,full of exacting facts that tie all lineage of grippers together in a well illustrated amazingly clear work. On the first reading I learned more about gripper evolution than any other time in my life. For anyone who wants the power of knowledge this is it! I found the answer to a number of gripper mysteries I have pondered over for years. Great stuff!

Richard,

Thank you very much for your kind words.

With 5 volumes now down, and just three to go, I also have to thank all the people who have helped me with this huge project.

I agree with Richard. These books are really goof historical info and some rare images that add to the content.

Vol. 5 is my favorite volume so far. Great job David!!!

I am waiting for the published hard copy, I really want these but would rather own all in one published piece that I can read anywhere. After a time, reading on a computer screen really screws with my eyes.
