This vintage book contains a fascinating and comprehensive treatise on archery, and includes a wealth of interesting historical information. This antiquarian book will appeal to those with an interest in the history and development of the use of a bow and arrow, and it would make for the perfect addition to collections of related literature. Roger Ascham (1515 - 1568) was a seminal English scholar and writer, who was famous for his unique prose style, his celebration of the vernacular, and his ideas pertaining to education. Many old books such as this are increasingly hard-to-come-by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this text now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a new prefatory biography of the author.
