The Rise and Fall of an Empire-The Triumph Story by Floyd Rainey is a 27 page booklet, it measures approximately 8 1/2 inches by 14 inches and is stapled together. It pretty much appears to me that it was home made, by that I mean Mr. Rainey did not use a publisher, but copied the manuscript and sold it on his own. I was told this is how it was marketed. In any event it is interesting indeed and has many pictures and drawings of Triumph Traps. The booklet was written by the request of many collectors who wish to enhance their knowledge of the Triumph Trap. The author has logged over 5,000 hours in a lifetime study of the Triumph Trap Co. plus many seasons field testing the same. $20.00 SHIPPED (MEDIA MAIL). SOLD SOLD SOLD
