The making of the Paradox and other Holland & Holland sporting guns. .Technical aspects of the Paradox. Howthe Paradox was marketed and sold by Holland & Holland. .Notable customers and famous hunters. the evolution of the Holland & Holland and the impact of the Paradox on the company's fortunes.

HOLLAND & HOLLAND 'THE ROYAL' GUNMAKER
The Complete History New Edition
by Donald Dallas

2014 London, 392pp, color and b&w photos, 9x12, hardcover, dj

Donald Dallas's bestselling book on England's most beloved gunmaker has now been completely revised and updated. Beautifully illustrated throughout with a considerable number of new photographs, this is the definitive history of Holland & Holland, written with the full approval and cooperation of the company. The title refers to Holland & Holland's well-known trademark, "The Royal," first advertised in May 1885. It was intended to apply to their best shotguns and rifles only. Royal shotguns and rifles have been in production ever since that date, and the choice of the name symbolizes the excellence of the company's output.

This brand-new edition brings the history of the company right up to the present day. New appendixes include a detailed explanation of the development of the .700 Nitro Express cartridge as well as many illustrations and descriptions of very rare Holland & Holland guns and rifles. Several additional appendixes will be of special interest to gun enthusiasts and owners. All fifty-one patents owned by the company are described, the dating of Holland serial numbers is given from 1855 to the present day, all the trade labels are illustrated, and the rifle cartridges developed and introduced by the company are also examined in detail.

The book includes a foreword by Daryl Greatrex, Managing Director of Holland & Holland.
