"The result of years of study, it records the archival knowledge of many long defunct gunmakers, for the first time in many cases. This is in addition to the archive records that were unavailable to the author when the previous volumes went to press." Sporting Rifle
"The glossary of technical words and expressions relating to firearms and ammunition is the best I have seen in any gun book. It provides clear explanations of the meaning of not only the basic terms but also some of the more archaic ones whose use is generally confined to those within the trade. The triology is the most complete record of the British gun trade published to date." Classic Arms and Militaria
"A compilation of the known history and existing records of a vast number of gunmaking firms, this final volume completes a set of what is undoubtedly the best reference available for those with an interest in British gunmaking... Packed full of information, this book is ideal for any gunmaking aficionado's bookshelf". Shooting Gazette
