I did find this book new without dust cover for $180 + shipping https://gunandswordcollector.com/product/winchester-1876-centennial-rifle-herbert-houze/ but just still found that expensive when they were originally $59.99.  

Actually they were $45.

…lucky to own this rare Winchester saddle ring rifle & it’s a 1 of 1 unless another surfaces. I’ll still be happy with a 1 of 2.

A heavy-barreled 1876 with a damaged muzzle impinging on the bore and a broken set trigger knockoff spring.

An 1886 with a non-functioning close-coupled set trigger
