This book covers a total of 51 British gun makers; 26 from London, 16 from Birmingham, 17 from the provinces and 8 Scottish gunmakers. It traces their origins, histories, founding personalities and the type and quality of firearms that each brought forth. Prior to this book, it was very difficult to provide little more than dates of a British gun company. Now, the critical information that owners of British guns need is all right here in one book. Illustrated with dozens of photos it is a wealth of information for all interested in British sporting firearms. Included are a glossary of terms and an index. Boothroyd is an internationally recognized expert on gunmaking and British shotguns and the author of numerous books and hundreds of articles. He is so well known that producers of the James Bond movies came to him for advice regarding firearms. This book is a valuable reference tool and is based on the articles he has written for the British magazine Shooting Times since 1958.
