About this Item

ANDREWS, R[ichard] Snowden. Andrews' Mounted Artillery Drill; Compiled According to the Latest Regulations from Standard Military Authority. Charleston, SC: Evans and Cogswell, 1863. 1st ed. 164pp. Plates, bugle music. Orig. blindstamped cloth, wear to spine ends, scattered wear to cloth, uniform toning, else very good. P&W 4721. Rare. First, and only, edition, written by a Confederate artillery commander who introduced new guns made for him in Richmond. Dedicated to Stonewall Jackson only one month before he was mortally wounded by accidental fire of his own troops at Chancellorsville. The 61 plates at the back show the maneuvering, sponging, loading, ramming, and pointing of cannon, plus bugle signals. "It would have been better to have had wood-cut rather than lithographic illustrations, as the cuts would then have been on the same page with the explanations of the various maneuvers. The blockade renders this at this time impossible.". Bookseller Inventory # 68114
