Shotguns - Their History and Development (Shooting Series - Guns amp Gunmaking) This important work on the Shotgun was first published in London 1923 in limited numbers, and is now a rare find in its first edition.

One hundred and fifty five pages are divided into eight detailed chapters: - The History of the Shotgun. - The Selection of a Gun. - Game Guns, Wildfowl Guns, and Small Bores. - Repeating, Automatic and Miscellaneous Guns. - The Shotgun Cartridge. - Ballistics. - The Gun-Room, Accessories and Dress, etc. - Shooting. Etc. Also included is a 12 page appendix on Shotgun Data and Tables. The contents are interspersed with numerous vintage photographs and other illustrations of shotguns and equipment. The author was a well known sportsman whose many years of practical experience with guns and their usage have made this book a valuable contribution to the history of shotguns, and also a recommended addition to any shooting enthusiasts library. Many of the earliest sporting books, particularly those dating back to the 1800s, are now extremely scarce and very expensive.
