I am looking forward to reading through this book this weekend and learning a little bit more about this enigmatic maker. I’m interested to see what new information Dr. Harlow can bring to our collective knowledge.

I have one on order through my local bookshop. Better give them a call and see if it's in. I understand that it is a rather limited edition. Lagopus.....

I must say that glancing over the book, it is one of the best gun books on a manufacturer that I have seen. Donald Dallas is great, but Dr. Harlow is next level. The data and statistics present from the available archives is tremendous. Want to know how many 20 bore o/u's sold in 1923? How about a breakdown by country and vendor about where those guns went? How about profiles on the original buyers from the VL&D records? All of these questions are answered. Did you know that Woodward made a 24 bore O/U on a scaled action??? There is an appendix copy of the purchase agreement whereby Purdey acquired Woodward. Fascinating. I can't wait to read it cover to cover.

It contains interesting information about Purdey drawing on Edwinson Green’s design as the basis for their first Over and Under.

They bought a second hand Green O&U number 6896 from Vaughan’s to study, and later re-sold it.

The impression is that they made no direct contact with Green about their project.

I am hoping for some information on the Woodward single trap, a highlight of my trap gun collection.
