Long Beach, CA: Safari Press, 2001. First Edition. Hardcover. Hundreds of books have been published about the British gun trade, but English speakers and publishers have largely ignored the European trade in fine guns until now! Many experts argue that Continental gunmakers produce guns equally as good or better than British makers. Marco Nobili's new work, Fine European Gunmakers, showcases the skills of the best craftsmen from continental Europe, and the author brings to life in words and pictures their finest sporting guns. The book covers the histories of the individual firms and looks at the guns they currently build, tracing the developments of their most influential models. Depicted with profuse color illustrations, it showcases the best guns ever made in Europe. All the greatest names are here, including Piotti, Beretta, Merkel, Kreighoff, Connecticut Shotgun, Perazzi, Hartmann & Weiss, Peter Hofer, Gamba, Fausti, Fanzoj, Lebeau & Courally, Fabbri and many others. This exciting and valuable new reference work, profusely illustrated in color, will be an important addition to the bookshelf of any serious collector, or anyone who is simply enamored of fine sporting guns. 250 pp. MINT, New Old Stock.
