This exhibit takes its name from PTERYPLEGIA: Or, The Art of SHOOTING-FLYING, A POEM, by Mr. Markland, A.B., fellow of St. John’s College in Oxford, and published in 1717. This book, of which the National Sporting Library and Museum has a third edition (1767), is one of the earliest works in English to give instructions on how to shoot flying birds with a gun.
