Magnificent Madness Charles Gordon
In 1908 a Curator Bonis had to be appointed to direct his life and his house, estate and his possessions were all sold including his gun collection. He died in 1918 in a humble cottage on his old estate.
This book uncovers the privileged yet tragic life of Charles Gordon for the first time. His collection is described in great detail and all his known purchases are listed. The 1908 sale catalogue of his muzzle-loaders is reproduced that will be of great interest to owners of Gordon guns. No longer will Charles Gordon be an enigma, his magnificent madness will enthral all.
“This book is a major contribution to the recording of sporting heritage. It deserves a place in the library of anyone who loves fine British guns.”
