The Paul Mauser private archive represents a unique and ir- replacable source of original documents that has been preserved until now and must be preserved for future generations. It allows discovering Paul Mauser not only as engineer but also his relationships with the relatives, friends, competitors and enemies. The study of his archive is a great adventure for historical weapon researchers and enthusiasts.A serious effort is on-going to preserve, digitalize and publish this impressive amount of data; this web site is part of this effort.The aim of this web site is providing a classification of the different documents that can be found in the archive and show the potential of this study.The amount of document prevents the possibility of using a web site for publishing the entire material; for this reason another solution is foreseen and described in the “future projects”. Read also “Legal & Contact” for information about how contacting the authors and the policy for using the documents presented.
