Item Description: Paul Hamlyn London. (1962,1963) 1967 UK reprint. Large 4to (213 x 298mm). Pp268. Colour and b/w photographs and illustrations, bibliography. Blue cloth, upper board and spine titled in gilt. Foxing and use. Good only in used dust-wrapper. "This book is an effort to trace the story from the discovery of gunpowder to the late nineteenth century, when the appearance of smokeless powders began a new era of firearms history. Technical advancement supplies the thread of the narrative, but there have been technical books before. Here there is an attempt to relate these achievements to history and, above all, to people, and to indicate some of the excitement, the humour, and the curious lore that is as much a part of the subject as the improvement of a lock mechanism. It is a book done for fun with the hope that the reader will find it entertaining too." First published in the USA in 1962 as The Treasury of the Gun. The UK edition was first published in 1963 and re-titled, The Book of the Gun. Chapters include:- Friar Bacon and his secret powder; Marvellous monsters; The mechanic's delight; Pecking roosters and biting dogs; The flintlock that shaped history; The clergyman's discovery; The spinning ball; Loading at the breech; To load but once and fire often; The revolving cylinder; "The very perfection of firearms"; A gallery of fine arms.

Item Description: Blue Rider Press. New York. (2008) 2014 1st US edition. Square 4to (222 x 235mm). Ppxii,132. Colour photographs throughout. Pictorial laminated boards, issued without a dust-wrapper. Mint new copy. An attractive new American edition of Walter Potter and his Museum of Curious Taxidermy, first published privately by the author in 2008. Walter Potter (1835-1918) was a country taxidermist of no great expertise, but he and the little museum he created became famous as an icon of Victorian whimsy. He created a fantasy world in taxidermy, where rabbits went to school, kittens played croquet and squirrels drank port in their smart club. These tableaux included his recreation of the Death and Burial of Cock Robin, probably the most famous item of Victorian taxidermy. His tiny museum in Bramber, Sussex, was crammed full of taxidermy, including multi-legged kittens, two-headed lambs and a bewildering assortment of general curios. The museum was moved to other sites, ending up at Jamaica Inn in Cornwall, where it was finally sold and dispersed in 2003. This book tells what little is known about Potter and documents the history of his museum, as well as providing a permanent record of the collection. (Previous price £20.00).

"The World of Moc: The Autobiography of Moc Morgan." [The author] "is known mainly as Wales's chief angler and authority on fishing. But he is a great deal more than that. He was farm boy to one of the mountain farms of Tregaron (despite being still at school). He has been a student, a teacher and a headmaster. He has been a dangerous footbal player. He has been a theatrical producer and director. He has been a county councillor. He has been a radio and television presenter. He has shot and hunted. .Long passed his eightieth, [Moc] still fishes and recounts his feats aloud and in print. There is never talk of the one that got away. There aren't many who have succeeded in doing that. Here is a volume which will hook you and net you." Moc died in 2015. Bookseller Inventory # 41497
