An inspired combination of superb craftsmanship, elegant design, and lethal power, the best hunting guns occupy a unique place in the pantheon of sporting equipment. Highly prized by hunter and non-hunter alike, the guns and their history are explored fully in this remarkable work. The author combines the lore of the hunt with the story behind the creation and refinement of sporting guns, emphasizing their use in the field. In addition, a brand-by-brand catalog examines the finer points of the greatest guns in current production, providing specifications on action, barrels, engraving weight, stock, and caliber, along with illustrations featuring both the complete gun in profile and a detailed view of the action. In describing the odyssey of the gun -- from the great manufacturing centers at Liege, Birmingham, and Saint-Etienne, to the unparalleled gun makers Purdey, Holland & Holland, Francotte, and Lebeau-Courally -- Legendary Sporting Guns also tells the story of hunting itself. This fascinating book is a terrific gift for hunters and collectors.
