THE BRITISH SHOTGUN, Volume 2
1871-1890
by Ian Crudgington & David Baker

1989 Southampton, 250pp, photos, 8x11, hardcover, dj
ISBN: 978-1-84689-117-5

The British Shotgun, Volume Two 1871-1890 is the second volume of the definitive work on the evolution and manufacture of the British shotgun—a superb example of the British heritage of craftsmanship, ingenuity, and artistry.

The main purpose of the book is to provide the reader with a reference tool so that any British-made shotgun of the period can be identified and its place in the evolution of the gun understood. Experts in the subject, Ian Crudgington and David Baker have extensively researched the developments of the period by a careful investigation of the records of the Patent Office, which is the only reliable contemporary guide to what would otherwise be a daunting mass of material. In addition, they studied the records of the time, both magazines and booka. Quotations from these sources provide informative background material and add to the atmosphere of the book. Of even greater importance has been the study of actual surviving guns, both from the authors' own collections and those of friends at home and abroad.

Where possible, the authors have shot with the guns concerned and this aspect has yielded valuable insight into how practical developments evolved. This very important period covered by the book includes almost all of the features introduced in the side-by-side shotgun we know today.
