THE SHOT GUN & ITS USES
By "East Sussex"
This fascinating but little-known book was first published in London in 1914. The author was a prolific contributor to the sporting press of that time and was an acknowledged expert on guns and shooting.
Read Country Books have now republished it using the original text and illustrations.
The books 232 pages are a veritable mine of information on the development, manufacturing, choice, and use of, the English shotgun and its associated cartridges and loads.
Much practical advise is also offered on shooting grouse, pheasant, partridge, woodcock and wildfowl etc, with a multitude of tips on dealing with high birds, "coasters," wind direction and weather, "flapper-shooting," etc.
Fourteen comprehensive chapters deal effectively with each of these subjects and are fully illustrated with vintage black and white photos and illustrations. The original fascinating adverts for guns, cartridges, shooting grounds, equipment etc, have also been retained for historical interest.
This early shooting book will prove to be a valuable asset in increasing the knowledge and prowess of all "gun-buffs" and shooting men. The book is bound in quality pictorial soft covers.
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.
