THE YOUNG SHOT. By Noel M. Sedgwick, Editor of the Shooting Times.

1940 1st edition. 8vo (142 x 221mm). Ppxii,236. B/w photograph plates, illustrations. Tan cloth, spine titled in black.

Noel M. Sedgwick, then editor of The Shooting Times, gives good advice and instructions for the teenage reader. And, indeed, for anyone else who is interested in the subject. A whole genre of shooting books exists which deals with the new conditions obtaining after the Second World War. This book, of 1942, is perhaps the first, since Sedgwick explains in his Foreword that "Since commencing to write this book, many and startling changes have overcome the shooting world, owing to the prosecution of the war. Almost in a night, it seems, the face of our island home has changed...". And more was to come. Chapters include; shooting to-day; safety first; guns and cartridges; how to shoot; behaviour in the shooting field; the sportsman-naturalist; vermin; rooks and rook shooting; trapping and snaring; ferreting; pigeon shooting 1; pigeon shooting 2; rough shooting; the grouse; the pheasant; the partridge; snipe; the woodcock; the hare; the not-so-humble rabbit; inland marshes; wildfowling; dogs and dog-training. A good read and still useful.
