The book outlines a 50 year search for fine English guns and rifles and the enthusiasts met on the way. Guns by Manton, Forsyth, Purdey and Holland and Holland are all there together with many more superlative makers.
Excellent gun photography by Derbyshire’s Ernest A. Drury Smith and examples, in colour, of the finest gun engraving supplied by the Birmingham gun trade.
A beautifully produced book that you will find not only highly informative but very easy to read with its short chapters, many diversions and lavish illustrations. Very much a companion volume to Peter’s previous book “One Man’s Scotland”.
