A well thought-of instructional manual on competitive rifle shooting. "Position Rifle Shooting is specifically concerned with three-position ISU riflery, the target shooting mode used worldwide in competition ranging from local matches to the Olympic Games, and it contains literally everything a competitor needs to know to become a champion. However, its real scope is so much broader that every kind of shooter, plinker, and hunter will find it invaluable. Its discussions of the various psychological and physical aspects of learning, training, and competing are so thorough and so sound that they can help competitors at virtually anything to do it better. .all the elements of shooting skill are covered, from the most basic to the most sophisticated: developing a winning mental attitude, how to train, how the body and mind must understand and use the physics of shooting, how to refine each position - even how to coach other shooters and how to organize a team. A supplementary section covers limited-time and rapid-fire matches and the sitting position used in four-position matches, and there is an annotated bibliography and a complete index. If you want to improve your shooting skills and are willing to use your brain as well as your body, this is the book for you." A useful guide even for the non-competitive sporting shooter.

One corner bumped but internally clean. Good-plus in used dust-wrapper. "As the nineteenth century drew to a close the skills of the British gunmakers were reaching their pinnacle. The creation of an Empire and the Industrial Revolution had introduced new technology and invention at a pace never experienced before. Manufacturing expertise had been honed to perfection and the increased wealth of the gentry heralded a healthy market for sporting guns. The lifestyle at the turn of the last century is now a piece of costume drama, it is as if we live on a difference planet, but the skills of that era live on and British sporting guns are highly prized and admired for their precision and beauty. This book takes a look at the guns in common use during those few years and examines the shooting scene in general. It looks at the state of the art 'Best' guns, manufactured for the affluent shots of the age and also covers the other aspects of country life, from poacher to gamekeeper - what was the type of weapon available to them? Cartridges and other equipment are discussed while extracts from magazines, a whole catalogue and a list of all the gunmakers in the British Isles give the reader a feel for the era.".

Item Description: George Edward Lodge Trust. Bourton, Dorset. 2010 1st edition. 8vo stapled booklet (148 x 210mm). Pp16. Colour paintings and b/w photographs throughout. Fine unread stapled paperback. This is a nicely-illustrated prospectus for an exhibition of Lodge's work which was held in turn at the Surrey Heath Museum in Camberley, the Tryon gallery in London, and Nature in Art, at Twigworth, Gloucestershire, in 2010. "George Edward Lodge has left behind his unparalleled stamp on the natural world through his artwork, records and diaries. This man of vision and scrupulous painstaking study has taught us all something of nature's wonderful realm. He has, and is inspiring generations of folk globally, even fifty six years after his death. .Over the years falconers worldwide have revered Lodge's paintings of raptors. Lodge himself was an avid falconer, and had a passion for painting birds of prey like no other bird artist of his day. His acute observations enabled him to see the characters of individual hawks, and this he depicted whilst sketching and painting them. You will probably find no better critic on raptor paintings than a falconer - as they work so closely with their hawks in the mews and field.". Bookseller Inventory # 41714

Item Description: Country Life. London. (1924) 1955 3rd edn reprint. Small 8vo (125 x 190mm). Ppxii,137. B/w photographs. Green boards, spine titled in gilt. Slightly bumped, slight browning to end-papers and edges. Good-plus, lacks dust-wrapper. This is Sharpe's well-known manual on gundog training which ran to several editions in its day. "Although first published over thirty years ago [1924], there has always been a steady and continuous demand for [this book]. This new edition comes in response to many requests from all over the world. The book has stood the test of time because the principles of instruction perfected by this pioneer of modern dog training have remained basically the samne. Mr. Sharpe's system of training is extremely simple and attains the most satisfactory results without in any way lessening the dog's capacity for using its own intelligence." Rather dated, but still very well thought of. Chapters include: The first lesson - obedience; Teaching to drop at a distance; First lesson in retrieving; Exceptions among dogs, and sundry hints; Finding promiscuously hidden dummies; First lesson with the spring thrower; The report of the gun, and further lessons in steadiness; Introduction to fur and teaching to point; Teaching to get through a fence; Teaching to jump fences and gates, together with seasonable hints; Teaching to find game and follow a runner; Teaching to follow a laid line; Teaching to retrieve from or across water; Teaching spaniels to hunt their game; The first shooting expedition; Mainly about spaniels.

General light shelf-wear (slightly bumped / stained). Good copy in slightly faded dust-wrapper. "The imitation of terrestrials is not in itself a new idea: grasshoppers, ants and other nonaquatic insects have brought anglers success for centuries. But only recently have these flies begun to form a major part of the fly fisher's arsenal. The modern 'terrestrial movement' started in the late 1940's on the limestone rivers of south-central Pennsylvania and has spread throughout the world. Ed Koch, a major contributor to the development of the new terrestrials, shares a wealth of information on the patterns - how they came about, how to tie them, and how to use them to take trout." Chapters include: The Jassid; The Japanese Beetle; Ants; The Letort Hopper; The Cricket; Other terrestrials; A nine-pounder; Tackle; Limestoners and freestoners; Charles K. Fox - his influence.

Item Description: George G. Harrap and Co. London. 1954 1st edition. 8vo (135 x 202mm). Pp272. B/w photograph plates, illustrations, foreword by the Duke of Manchester. Dark red cloth, spine titled in gilt. Well used but clean reading copy. Lacks dust-wrapper. Wentworth Day spent sixteen years thinking about this book and collecting material, before setting it down on paper over six weeks at the beginning of 1953. "In this book I have tried to give a 'human' History of the Fens. I have avoided long and tedious excursions into geology, botany, entomology, pre-history, ecclesiastical history, and drainage. Those well-trodden paths need few new signposts. I have concentrated instead on the lives and character of the Fen people, and have tried to recreate pictures of the old and savage Fen, its meres and swamps, with the wings of wildfowl like thunder in the dawn, its fowlers and fishermen, as it was in its ancient glory. .I have tried, in these pages, to convey some of the magic and the beauty of the Fens, the blunt character of its outspoken people, something of the charm of birds and lure of fish, the majesty of immense sunsets and sea-born dawns, and the mystery of that old Fen, a sullen place of fascination and of horror. .Finally, I owe a bow of thanks across the grave to Lord Orford, whose rare, privately printed 'Journal' I give almost in extenso.".
