A very interesting military themed engraving filled with depictions of weapons, bombs, missiles, fortifications, tools, battery construction, and much more. Completely filled with information including some of the most bizarre and, obviously, lethal weapons we've seen. A legend identifies 83 items with keyed number to engraving. A remarkable and rarely seen issue.


Condition: A

Crisp impression of a sheet of hand laid paper. Close trimmed around, apparently as issued, with paper laid in at side of binding trim. One light spot, still very good.
