Cogswell & Harrison, as the business became known in the midnineteenth century, has manufactured an extraordinary diversity of sporting guns and rifles during its long and colorful history. Established in 1770, it is London’s oldest surviving gunmaker. In the nineteenth century, under the direction of Edgar Harrison, the most influential figure in its history, Cogswell & Harrison became known for its ingenious innovations in gunmaking technology. Graham Cooley and John Newton chart the company's changes of fortune that brought great commercial success and some spectacular disasters. They discuss the wide range of guns and rifles produced by Cogswell & Harrison, including side-by-side, over-and-under, and single-barrel shotguns; double rifles; falling-block rifles; bolt action magazine rifles; and rook and rabbit rifles. The authors have gathered a wealth of fascinating historical and technical material that will make the book indispensable, not only to many thousands of "Coggie" owners worldwide, but also to anyone interested in the general history of British gunmaking.
