Geoff Lawson was born in 1949 and has always been involved with historical firearms, shooting muzzle-loading rifles that he built himself for many decades at shooting events and on hunting  trips. Becoming involved with the restoration of Krupp Number 4 in 2004, he realized that when it was finished there would be questions, such as were did it come from, where did it go and how did it get to Whanganui, New Zealand? Thus began a seven year investigation into the history of Krupp Number 4 that culminated in this book. Most old artilleryguns have no known history and therfore are of limited value as an artifact, but in this case the history of Krupp Number 4 is known - we know were it came from, who had it and how it came to be half a world away from the country it was built for, all of which has elevated it to an all new level of the historical spectrum.
