British Gunmakers – Volume 3 only

£400.00

Product description

British Gunmakers – Volume 3 only
Volume 3: Index, Appendices & Additional London, Birmingham, Regional and Scottish Records

Nigel Brown
Quiller Publishing Ltd, Shrewsbury, 2009.

Hardback; 225 x 310 mm; black boards with titles in silver on spine; 299 pages; endpaper maps; illustrations in colour; printed on good quality paper. Original unclipped dust jacket.
The book is in fine condition.

“One of the most important aspects of the ‘British Gunmakers’ series of books has been the compilation of the past and existing records of the many gunmaking firms and the setting down of the historical facts known about them before they get lost in the mists of time. No such collection ... can ever be complete but this volume in conjunction with the first two is undoubtedly the best printed source of such historical record information available anywhere in the world. Not only does Volume 3 enlarge on such factual information set out in Volumes 1 and 2 but it also includes unique record research on around 120 additional Birmingham, Scottish and regional gunmaking firms and over seventy additional London ones, quite apart from updating many existing records in both volumes…. It also takes the opportunity to fill in … gaps not covered in Volumes 1 and 2 about the powder and ammunition companies and in addition starts to record something of the UK’s air weapon industry that has grown up over the last few decades and now leads the world.”
