On 4 May in 1951,  Sir Hugh Beaver, who was the owner of "Guiness" beer company, went on a shooting party in the North Slob, by the River Slaney in County Wexford, Ireland. One of friends opened a conversation of the fastest bird in Europe and they began to argue. Hugh decided to search for that information in books but understood that there wasn’t such information in books yet, and thought that it would be better to have a book of Records where everybody can find answer to any question.
In 1955, he released his first book "The Guinness Book Of Records" and in the same year this book became is one of the UK bestsellers.
