    Descripción Quiller Publishing Ltd., 2013. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. Estado de la sobrecubierta: New. 2nd Edition... 472 pages. Huge volume. 10" x 12.5". Hundreds of beautiful sharp photographs and illustrations, many in color. "There is no gunmaker personally better known than Mr. Purdey; there is none less written about" wrote G.T. Teasdale-Buckell in Experts on Guns and Shooting in 1900. The name 'James Purdey & Sons' is universally respected and known the world over as maker of the finest quality guns. Established by James Purdey the Elder in 1814, Purdey built best-quality guns, rifles and pistols to the highest standardss, right from the start. Patronised by European royalty and nobility, they could claim to have built guns for all nine kings attending King Edward VII's funeral in 1910. Today the firm still continues that tradition begun in 1814. James Purdey the Elder's son, James Purdey the Younger, took over the running of the firm in 1858 and was responsible for developing the muzzle-loading rifle to the pinnacle of its development, the Express rifle. In the early breech-loading period he invented, in 1863, the most famous closing action of all time, the Purdey bolt. He was quick to see the adventages of the hammerless gun and was astute in purchasing and developing the Beesley hammerless action of 1880 that is universally admired today. He created guns of great style and elegance and established the form of the hammerless ejector for all others to follow. The author has produced several appendices of great interest to the Purdey owner and collector. Purdey serial numbers are listed for the years 1814-2014 to assist with dating guns; production figures are given to show the rarity of certain weapons; all the Purdey patents are described and of particular interest are the Purdey gunmakers, names to help identify initials stamped on the various parts of Purdey guns. The Second Edition celebrates Purdey's two hundred years of gunmaking from 1814 to 2014. It brings the history of the firm right up to date - over 170 photographs have been added which sit alongside fresh material. New appendices have been inserted covering Purdey rifle cartridges, a rare 1885 Purdey gun catalogue and Purdey gun cases. An outstanding new reference. Language: eng Language: eng Language: eng.
