Summary

James Duff (1870-1935) had nearly fifty years' experience in archery, making longbows and arrows with the famous makers of the 19th century, and for the best archers in both Great Britain and America.

This is a very practical book, aiming to encourage archers to make their own equipment. Well worth a read if you are considering making either bows or arrows, even if rather opinionated in places.
