About this Item

xxiv, 251, [7] pages, including the errata sheet. Nine engraved plates and three target plates, showing the accuracy of various rifle bores. With a fourth target illustration, in manuscript, bound in. A significant early work on the rifle (the title is a Latinized word meaning The Militiaman) describing attempts to increase the accuracy of weapons. The anonymous author of this book argues for a greater twist to the rifling than was prevalent at the time. The person who inserted the additional manuscript target plate (initials R.E.P.) agreed with that proposition and his manuscript target plate results using quarter, half, and three-quarter twists supports that conclusion. Second ediiton. Recently half-bound in blue straight-grained morocco and marbled paper. Fine. Bookseller Inventory # 16298
