"The Shooting Field is part of the British heritage. This book tells the story of the London gun trade from the earliest days, and particularly from 1835 through the eyes of a most famous maker, Holland and Holland, and of their customers, their rivals, and their craftsmen. We travel to India with the Prince of Wales and to Africa with Sir Samuel Baker and Teddy Roosevelt. These great shots tell us in their own words what it was like to shoot with a Holland and Holland, an experience denied to all but the most fortunate of men.

"The company's archives have been exhaustively researched to reveal the continuous experiments which Holland and Holland carried out which resulted in the wealth of innovative patents that the company has filed.

"We learn of the development of the double barreled rifle, the breech loading shotgun, the cartridge, the punt gun, even a gun designed to shoot down Zeppellins in the Great War - but it is primarily the shotgun to which the firm owes its continuing fame.".
