Looking for an olde archerie booke? Welcome to The Archery Library.

The site holds books, prints like the above, and articles whose copyrights have apparently expired. The server is in Netherlands. European Economic Area rules apply, for them. Laws where you live may differ. The actual files are copyrighted by the site.

I recognized two books, Toxophilus, by Roger Aschram, 1545. And The Witchery of Archery, 1879, by Maurice Thompson, who, along with his brother, are credited with enlivening interest in archery among white folk in the U.S., members of aboriginal tribal nations already having established their fondness for it.

Worth a look if you’re hankerin’ to peer back into archery’s history.
