- Not available
For 200 years the gunmakers of London have enjoyed a worldwide reputation for the quality and reliability of their products. This first volume, originally published as London Gunmakers by the same author, has been revised and updated and chronicles the history of the London gun trade by gathering together in one volume the aggregate of surviving historical knowledge about the businesses large and small which between them made the London gun trade what it is. It provides an alphabetical list of all gunmakers and related trades giving their dates, addresses and changes, together with 48 individual histories. There is an alphabetical list of gunmakers' serial number records on a scale never previously achieved and various schedules list those individuals who have taken a leading part in the administration of the trade over the years. The author has also produced for the first time an alphabetical index of the brand names used by the various businesses in the London trade in respect of guns, rifles, cartridges and powders.
