Excellent early edition featuring all manner of information on guns during the early 19th Century, with many fine illustrations. Leather spine with 4 scenes in gilt, raised bands and rules; marbling to the boards, endpapers and page edges. A very hard-to-find volume, showing scattered occasional wear; both grooves are split, but have been repaired and are now tight; rubbing to the corners. Prelims and some of the text block are foxed.
