More Information
Hundreds of books have been published about the British gun trade, but English speakers and publishers have largely ignored the European trade in fine guns until now! Many experts argue that Continental gunmakers produce guns equally as good or better than British makers. Marco Nobili's new work, Fine European Gunmakers, showcases the skills of the best craftsmen from continental Europe, and the author brings to life in words and pictures their finest sporting guns. The book covers the histories of the individual firms and looks at the guns they currently build, tracing the developments of their most influential models. Marvel at the best engraved guns ever made in Europe, and note how the engravings of game birds, hunting dogs, big game, and even erotica are masterly crafted in amazing detail. You will also see some of the most expensive guns in the world like those with hinged "gull wing" sidelocks and three or even four barrels! The images are amazing, and no book has ever brought so many fine guns together under one cover. All the greatest names are here: Piotti, Beretta, Kreighoff, Connecticut Shotgun, Perazzi, Hartmann & Weiss, Peter Hofer, Gamba, Fanzoj, Lebeau-Courally, Fabbri, and many others. This exciting and valuable new reference work, profusely illustrated in color, will be an important addition to the bookshelf of any serious collector, or anyone who is simply enamored of fine sporting guns.
