THE RIFLE: AND HOW TO USE IT Comprising a Description of that Valuable Weapon in all its Varieties, And an Account of its Origin. By Hans Busk. M.A. Originally published in the 1850s, this extremely scarce, early work on the Rifle is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. The fourth edition, published in 1859 was considerably enlarged and revised. READ COUNTRY BOOKS have republished this later edition using the original text and illustrations. The author, Hans Busk the Younger, (1815-1882) was one of the main originators of the Volunteer Movement in England. He was a First Lieutenant in the Victoria Rifles and Deputy Lieutenant for Middlesex. The book's two hundred and twenty eight pages contain nineteen comprehensive and illustrated chapters: Brown Bess and Her Rivals. - Rifles. - Jacob's Pattern Rifle. - The Enfield Rifle. - Colt's Repeating Rifle. - Lancaster's Elliptic Rifles. - Whitworth's Rifle. - Prince's Breech Loader. - Terry's Breech Loading Rifle. - Westley Richard's Breech Loader. - General Observations. - How to Use the Rifle. - Preliminary Instructions in Firing. - The Volunteer Rifle Service. - On Drilling and Training Rifle Regiments. - The New Manual Exercise for Riflemen. - The Platoon Exercise. - Musketry Instruction. - Appendix. This book will appeal greatly to those interested in weaponry and technical detail and also to the student of military history.
