Details

Volumes one, two and three of The British Shotgun together for the bargain price of only GBP 50! All three volumes are lavishly illustrated with contemporary photographs and diagrams, illustrations and patent drawings. "This is an attempt to trace, as accurately as is now possible, the evolution of the shotgun during its formative years in Great Britain. Some of the developments of the period are known solely from the records of the patent office, others are mentioned in writings of the time, both magazine and book, and these sources have been extensively researched and are quoted from, where they add materially to our knowledge. Finally, and of paramount importance, has been the study of actual surviving guns... Where possible the authors have shot with the guns concerned and, again, this aspect has yielded a valuable insight into the practical developments which took place during the relevant years." All three volumes are also available for purchase individually at GBP 19.95 each.
