1967 1st edition. Small 8vo (132 x 203mm). Pp92. B/w illustrations by Bill Martin. Orange-brown boards, spine titled in gilt.

"It has been appreciated that the sharp staccato style of military authorship permitting the written word to be readily assimilated whilst standing to attention, is hardly suited to a potential gun-room primer whose reader normally assumes a more relaxed position in a deep armchair in front of a fire and only requires something to while away the idle hours or just keep the flies off his face till his wife summons him to dinner". "Gun safety is a subject which has for years worried those connected with shooting in this country. Gunmakers and gun vendors are constantly bombarded by novice and veteran sportsmen with enquiries for an authoritative handbook covering all the essentials of safety drill and etiquette in the shooting field. So it is perhaps surprising that this book, so sensibly yet entertainingly written by Roderick Willett, so aptly and wittily illustrated with line drawings, photographs and diagrams, is literally the only book of its kind".
