Tight, decent first edition of this well-known how-to manual. Introductory notice from Board of Officers presenting this text to the Secretary of War signed in type by Winfield Scott, Zachary Taylor and half a dozen other prominent military officers of the day. While the original calf binding is serviceable, if edgeworn, the paper spine labels are modern.
