Summary

An excellent book on Target Archery by one of the leading authorities of the first half of the twentieth century. Elmer is very knowledgeable about the manufacture of the equipment, and describes many of the experiments that were carried out to try and improve it. He also provides an interesting history of the development of archery in America, and lists many of the scores made in competitions in both the US and UK.
