New Book: Gun Makers of birmingham 1660/1960

Post by Alan David 60 »

Just noticed a new book has been published a couple of months ago.

The Gun Makers of Birmingham 1860 1960, by Joseph McKenna.

I just ordered a copy through Amazon. The author worked at the Birmingham Library for many years, so I think the book will be very well researched.

Regards

We bought a copy at the exorbitant price of £37.00 - for a 250 page paperback! The first half bored us with unimportant detail about BSA, the second half is 99% a repeat of English Gunmakers by Bailey & Nie - nothing important there!
