Overview
"There is no gunmaker personally better know than Mr Purdey; there is none less written about" wrote G T Teasdale-Buckell in 'Experts on Guns and Shooting' in 1900. The name James Purdey & Sons is universally respected and known the world over as makers of the finest quality guns. Established by James Purdey the Elder in 1814, Purdey built best-quality guns, rifles and pistols to the highest standards, right from the start. Patronised by European royalty and nobility, they could claim to have built guns for all nine kings attending King Edward VII's funeral in 1910. Today the firm still continues that tradition begun in 1814. This second edition celebrates Purdey's two hundred years of gunmaking from 1814 - 2014. It brings the history of the firm right up to date - over 170 new photographs have been added which sit alongside fresh material. New appendices have been inserted covering Purdey rifle cartridges, a rare 1885 Purdey gun catalogue and Purdey gun cases.
