This stunning book gives for the first time a detailed history of John Dickson & Son from 1794 to the present day. Established in 1838 at 60 Princes Street, Edinburgh, the firm quickly gained a reputation for building very high quality guns and rifles, their two-groove percussion rifles achieving international acclaim. John Dickson (3rd) made the greatest contribution to the firm by patenting the round action gun in 1880 that instantly achieved critical acclaim as a best gun utilising a trigger plate action. The beautiful and elegant three-barrelled gun followed in 1882 and by the time the ejector had been patented in 1887 the Dickson round action had been perfected.
This book goes into great detail on all the types of Dickson guns and rifles built and was written with the full permission of John Dickson & Son.
