About this title
In recent years, the art of gun engraving has become increasing important to collectors of best guns and rifles crafted by the great British gunmakers. This book charts the history and development of gun engraving and includes an important section on its contribution to the value of guns and rifles today.From the Publisher:
Finally somebody has written a good, well-illustrated book on fine English and European gun engravers-and that person is the gun authority Chris Austyn, head of Christie's gun sales in New York and London. And what a feast for the eyes this book is. In modern times the art of the sporting-gun engraver has become more and more important, especially since British gunmakers concentrate on producing a small number of beautifully crafted shotguns and rifles. This book is filled with fascinating archival material on old-time "engraving greats" like Harry Kell and Jack Summer, as well as modern artists like Ken Hunt, Geoffrey Casbard, and Malcolm Appleby. Also included is a pictorial section that lists types of engravings and prices. Austyn's previous books, Modern Sporting Guns and Classic Sporting Rifles, have been highly successful worldwide.
