A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF GUNS AND SHOOTING. BEING A LIST OF ANCIENT AND MODERN ENGLISH AND FOREIGN BOOKS RELATING TO FIREARMS AND THEIR USE, AND TO THE COMPOSITION AND MANUFACTURE OF EXPLOSIVES WITH AN INTRODUCTORY CHAPTER ON TECHNICAL BOOKS AND THE WRITERS OF THEM, FIREARMS INVENTIONS AND THE HISTORY OF GUNMAKING, AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE ART OF WING SHOOTING By Wirt Gerrarre A READ COUNTRY BOOKS CLASSIC REPRINT Originally published in 1895 this extremely rare early work on the bibliography of guns and shooting is both expensive and very hard to find in its first edition. READ COUNTRY BOOKS have republished it, using the original text as part of their History of Shooting series. Wirt Gerrarre was the pen name of W.O. Greener who was the son of W.W. Greener, the famous English gunmaker. He was perhaps best known as former editor of "The Gunmaker" and the "Sporting Goods Review." The book consists of two hundred and eighteen pages divided into three parts: Part One deals with Ancient Books (1472 - 1850). Part Two covers Modern Books (1851 - 1894) Part Three lists books on various gun related subjects including Arms Collections, Gunpowder, Gun Wounds etc. This important bibliography contains descriptions of hundreds of gun books originating from Europe, Asia, Africa, America and Australia, with short descriptions of each. This is a fascinating read for any gun buff or historian and will prove invaluable to the serious book collector. Many of the earliest sporting books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. READ COUNTRY BOOKS are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.Keywords: Country Books Wirt Firearms Bibliography Guns Pen Name W W Greener Foreign Books Technical Books Inventions Explosives Reprint Composition Sporting Goods
