KIRKUS REVIEW

For hunting and shooting enthusiasts, a history of sporting guns from the sixteenth century to the present. Akehurst draws on his own and other private collections for the 124 illustrations (old prints, color plates, photos). He has written on the subject before (Game Guns and Rifles). Here he emphasizes developments in design, decoration, tools and equipment.
