We show here a pictorial listing of books of interest to researchers in rifles and shooting.

These cover years from 1829 to 1931, and including many relevant military training manuals.

The document illustrates the covers, publisher and dates of each,

with the lists of contents, illustrations and plates where applicable,

with some internal pages and many contemporary advertisements included

to indicate what would be available to

any researcher who may choose to acquire a copy.


THESE ARE NOT HERE FOR SALE, so please don't ask.

Neither can we advise where they may be bought.


Some documents are available for download as PDFs at ARCHIVE.ORG

and physical copies may perhaps be located at such as ABEBOOKS.


Our document is in the form of a searchable flip-page booklet.

So, for example, if you type "Webley" into the search box,

and twice click the magnifier,

a listing of all incidences will appear to the left of the document,

clicking on each of which will take you to the appropriate page.
