Toxophilus – The School of Shooting in Two Books – written by Roger Ascham in 1545 and available for free on Google Books. This is the earliest printed book in English on Archery. (see Wikipedia ). The E-book was re-printed in Victorian times and this is the version available. The second book is the more interesting (starts on page 98). Some of the work is long winded, but amusing elsewhere. It also demonstrates how little has changed in the terminology that we use to this day (see the second book). A further version in old English, but giving information about Ascham is also available here . The book was written at a time when archery training for men and youths was compulsory.
