Item description for Shooting With Game and Gun Room Notes (History of Shooting Series - Shotguns) (History of Shooting Series: Shotguns) by "Blagdon"...

SHOOTING With GAME and GUN ROOM NOTES.

A Comprehensive Book of How to Shoot.

By "Blagdon."

Originally published in 1900 by the English gun maker "Cogswell and Harrison Ltd." This book is now very scarce and expensive in its first edition.

READ COUNTRY BOOKS have now republished it using the original text and illustrations.

One hundred and forty four pages contain nine detailed chapters: How to Shoot. -- Gun Fitting. -- Modern Guns. -- Ammunition. -- Grouse Shooting. -- Partridge Shooting. -- Pheasant Shooting. -- Live Pigeon Trap Shooting. - Inanimate Bird Shooting. The contents are extensively illustrated with full page and text drawings and photos. A number of the drawings are by Archibald Thorburn, G. E. Lodge and Henry Stannard.

As is to be expected with a famous gun makers publication, there is much technical advise and information, with many of the illustrations being of Cogswell and Harrison products. Also included are fifteen pages of vintage advertisements for guns and shooting equipment.

This is a fascinating read for any shooting enthusiast or historian, with much of the information remaining useful and practical today. The chapters on live and clay pigeon shooting are especially informative.

Many of the earliest sporting books, particularly those dating back to the 1800s, are now extremely scarce and very expensive. READ COUNTRY BOOKS are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
