Gun Cases, Gun Powder, Shot, Flints, Wadding, Flasks, Shooting, Dogs, Wildfowl, Boat Shooting...and much, much more.
This is a beautiful looking book. It is a hardcover, 548 pages. The cover is in almost perfect condition. Inside there are a few condition problems. The third page is loose and there is a small crack. There is a stain on the second page ( see photo). But actually for being almost 150 years old, it's probably in pretty good condition.
