The continuing high demand for copies of Volumes One and Two of the renowned British Shotgun series has led to Quiller issuing new facsimile editions to complement the long-awaited publication of Volume Three (now available). Both of these important works are lavishly illustrated with contemporary photographs and diagrams, illustrations and patent drawings. Volume One 1850-1870 traces the evolution of the shotgun during its formative years in Great Britain. Extensively and painstakingly researched, this highly regarded work gives an invaluable insight into the developments that took place during this innovative period.
