Arms & Armour Press, London, 1971. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine.
This volume was compiled in 1888 at the School of Musketry, Hythe, with official War Department recognition and the aid of the Royal Laboratory at Woolwich, the Royal Small Arms Factory at Enfield Lock, and the Royal Gunpowder Factory at Lewisham. As a result it was accepted by the British Army as a definitive textbook. This reprint reproduces the 1888 volume in full with all the many fine plates and engravings. In addition, four new photographic plates have been included so as to provide modern illustrations of various weapons mentioned. Both book and dust wrapper are in near to new condition.
