Anecdotes of Archery
From the earlieft ages to the year 1791
By E. Hargrove, 1792.

This book is written in an older spelling, where an s was typeset as an f. This has been preserved in this version.

It is truly a book of anecdotes, it is a summary of different anecdotes, without a very clear storyline, although there is some logic in the sequence.
