First published in Great Britain in 1881 and subsequently revised nine times between then and 1910, The Gun and Its Development traces the fascinating history of weaponry: the obscure, ancient origins of the slingshot and the bow, the invention of the crossbow, possibly around 1000 AD; the introduction of gunpowder into Europe in the fourteenth century; the development of sporting and military guns over the centuries thereafter; and the rise of modern, mass-produced firearms in the early twentieth century.

Every cat owner believes that his or her cat understands them. Every cat owner believes that cats are far more intelligent than dogs -- they're just too cool to show it. Every cat owner believes that their cat should be starring in TV commercials. Every cat owner, in short, is a cat lover.
If you're not a cat lover when the cat first comes along -- you don't purchase a cat, they choose to live with you -- then you will be within a very short space of time. There are stories, of course, that every cat owner loves to tell. It may be how the cat comforted them on the day a relative died unexpectedly. It may be about how the cat stares down urban foxes in the garden. It may be a story of the cat's escapades, or how it got stuck up a tree. It may simply be a story about how the cat is a loving companion.
