Synopsis

As the 19th century drew to a close, the skills of British gunmakers were reaching their pinnacle. Manufacturing expertise had been honed to perfection. This text examines the guns in common use during those few years and looks at the shooting scene in general. It looks at other aspects of country life, from poacher to gamekeeper, and the type of gun available to them. Cartridges and other equipment are discussed and extracts from magazines, advertising and a complete catalogue of the era give the reader a "feel" for the time.
