Toxophilus -The School Of Shooting (History of Archery Series) Roger Ascham This work comprises of two books combined together: The First Book of the School of Shooting and The Second Book of the School of Shooting. They are written in the form of a dialogue between Toxophilus 'A lover of the bow' and Philogus 'A lover of learning'. In the discussion Toxophilus justifies his love of archery as a pastime, puts forward his reasons for retaining the bow as a weapon of war instead of the newly favoured hand gun, and he gives practical instructions on the technique of shooting in the bow. Contents Include Chronicle of the life, Works, and Times of Roger Ascham Apologia The Royal Arms Dedication to the King Henry VIII To All Gentlemen and Yeoman of England The First Book Of The School Of Shooting The Second Book Of The School Of Shooting The Table Of Contents Of The First Book Of The School Of Shooting The Table Of The Second Book Of The School Of Shooting Glossary of Old Words Imprints of the first two editions of Toxophilus Originally published in 1544. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Obscure Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
