"All the gentlemen in Yorkshire shoot with Horsley guns: so wrote a correspondent to the Field in the late 1860's. This was no idle boast. A glance at the gun sales register of the time reveals a list of purchasers that reads like a 'Who was Who of Yorkshire'. Detailed account of the life and career of one of the nineteenth century's most notable gunmakers. Ever innovative, Horsley registered a number of significant patents in the nineteenth century, expiring only in the 1950's. 'In so many ways, Horsley's story represents that of the English gun trade in miniature.'"
