This collectible gun book is called HAWKER ON SHOOTING, Instructions to Young Sportsmen, Guns and Shooting, by Lieut.-Col. P. Hawker, copyright 1859, eleventh edition. 


Chapters on:   Guns and Gunmakers - Elevation, sights, Ramrod, Stock, Barrels.  Implements for Flint-Guns - Touchhole, Lock, Springs, Trigger.  Detonating System - The Gun, Breeching, Cleaning, Loading.  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.
