Synopsis: This important work includes many previously unrecorded designs and artefacts - for example nowhere else in print is to be found the whole story of the single trigger; the over and under gun; the cheap single barrel or the classic side-by-side gun. The success of this approach is shown by the high prices commanded by second-hand copies of Volumes One and Two - new facsimile editions of which are being re-issued by Quiller in July 2011.
About the Author: Ian Crudgington ran a successful gunmaking business and served for many years on the Council of the Gun Trade Association, and has been Chairman of the organisation.

David Baker has had a life-long fascination with the evolution of the sporting gun. With his writing career now in its fourth decade, he has produced hundreds of magazine articles and numerous books including The British Shotgun Volume One and Two; The Royal Gunroom at Sandringham and The Heyday of the Shotgun.
