photographs throughout. 8vo. 9 x 6 x 1 2/3. xi prelims & 285pp. From preface - I have not


written this book with the idea of instructing my grandfathers. Nor is it composed of strings of


technical words that no one but an advanced scientist could hope to understand. What I have set


down is the outcome of my own experiments and adventures in the school of experience, and is


primarily for beginners of various ages. And if they should profit by my suggestions, and if


others of the great brotherhood of those who delight in using a gun and appreciate the thousand


and one contingent pleasures thereof should find some satisfaction in my edeas and


reminiscences, that will be a reward above the shekels of gold. It is not given to all of us to be


exalted among the `six best shots in England` - of this I have already supplied more than my


share of evidence. But hte more a man knows of the craftsmanship of shooting, the fuller, I am


certain, is the bag of his pleasure.
