A matching place-holding silk ribbon is bound into each volume.
In addition to the limited edition book itself, this collector’s package includes the special 24-page 75th Anniversary Commemorative Photo Portfolio with an introduction by Jon Foster, the author’s grandson, and studio photographs of the legacy shotguns you see on this website.
Subscribers will also receive a high-quality Giclée art print faithfully reproduced from “Ruffed Grouse Shooting,” the 10 x 13 watercolor original (with two-inch white border all the way around) described above and pictured here. It is printed on Strathmore fine watercolor paper.

A FREE COMMEMORATIVE PHOTO PORTFOLIO WITH EVERY ORDER
You will receive a special 75th Anniversary Commemorative Photo Portfolio titled The Magic of “The Little Gun” with every copy of New England Grouse Shooting you order. This beautifully produced collector’s item has a moving introduction by the author’s grandson, as well as a warm and revealing biography of William Harnden Foster. The portfolio features rare closeup photos of the three shotguns mentioned in the book: the 12-gauge Damascus-steel Tonks; the 16-gauge Parker Bros. “Little Gun” made immortal in Foster’s classic book, along with images of the author’s favorite 28-gauge Parker from the 1930s. Few have handled or even seen these famous pieces. This is a rare treat for double-gun aficionados everywhere.
