THE GUN, AND HOW TO USE IT. By J. B. Johnson.

Price 3s.

“ There is great originality in his remarks; and, in the absence of far-fetched notions and erudite compositions, we have common-sense suggestions and plain-set comments. The young shooter will gather some instruction from the book, and the old hand will not fail to find in it something to repay him for a perusal."--ERA.

MHE DOG, AND HOW TO BREAK HIM; with his Diseases and

Method of Cure. By J. B. JOHNSON, Price 3s. “ His plan is excellent; he does not pretend to originality, but there are many novelties introduced by him. Indeed, these works are replete with wrinkles' worth acquiring, and in a concise shape you get all that is requisite for the purpose named. You learn briefly what should and should not be in reference to the different subjects in hand; and we perceive, too, that an abstract of the Game Laws is appended, sufficient for the guidance of those who would shoot, and yet avoid penalties.”—ERA.

“ It is seldom, indeed, the young sportsman has the opportunity of learning so much with so little trouble to himself, as he may from “The Gun, and how to use it,' or from The Dog, and how to break him. Moreover, he can receive what he reads with every confidence in his author; for Mr. Johnson is no skilful collector of other men's matter, but a well-tried sportsman, who only recommends what he himself has tested and approved. There is not a breed of shooting dogs, or a part and parcel of the gun, but has due notice and elucidation as to how it should be treated. They are very neatly printed and got up, and equally to be recommended for cheapness and portability.”—SPORTING MAGAZINE (September).
