From the Publisher:

Sacred Archery - the forty prophetic traditions - is now available for the first time in the English language, translated from Arabic and Ottoman Turkish, these forty authentic ahadith on archery are available as gathered and commented upon by the Master Archer, Katib Abdullah Efendi over four hundred years ago.
Included in the book is the first chapter of traditions, history, and legends of sacred archery as translated from the Telhis resa’il rumat by Mustafa Kani. This chapter really adds "juice to the meat" and gives an insight into the Islamic thought, beliefs, and practices that existed in the bilad ul-islam, or "abodes of peace", which have all but now been lost. It represents outstanding value at £13-99, for a truly unique work.

About the Author:

Katib Abdullah was a scribe of the Yeni Valide Sultana Mosque complex, later an Imam at the prestigious Ayyub Ansari Mosque, and finally Sheikh of the Archers Field – the Ok Meydani in Istanbul. He held these estemed posts during the closing years of 17th century, during very turbulent times with in the Ottoman Empire. He was widely acknowledged the finest target archer, flight archer, and mounted archer of his generation by both common soldiers and pashas alike. He is recorded as shooting an arrow the distance of six football pitches, and hitting the bulls-eye from the distance of a single football pitch’s length, demonstrating not only great skill and strength, but also the refinement and superiority of this form of sunnah archery above any other.
