This is a new edition of The British Shotgun Volume Two, uniform with the recently published British Shotgun Volume Three 1891 - 2011. The continuing high demand for copies of Volumes One and Two of the British Shotgun series has led to the publication of new facsimile editions to complement the publication of Volume Three (Autumn 2011). All three volumes are lavishly illustrated with contemporary photographs and diagrams, illustrations and patent drawings.
