One of the most famous books on the history of artillery!

 

Diego Ufano was a 16th-century Spanish historian of military warfare and artillery. His most important contribution to the subject was his work ‘Artillerie’ which features details on 16th-century guns and ammunition. His notes and observations on gunmen were far beyond their time, not only that, they are incredibly informative to the styles of warfare tactics used centuries ago.

 

This book provides step-by-step tutorials on how to clean, load, aim, and fire muzzle-loading firearms – all to the beat of a drummer’s drumroll. It also describes how to move cannons up a mountain, manufacturing and building, and details on ammunition trajectory. It also includes use of cannons in the Philippines, China, and Tartary.

 

This exquisite 1628 French edition is illustrated with utterly fascinating engravings of cannons and all its parts, cannon balls and ammunition, trebuchets, castles and forts, and much more. This edition was translated into French out of the original Spanish by Johann Teodor de Bry.
