[From the upper cover]: Pläne zum Waffen-Unterricht der K. B. Infanterie. Entw. u. gezeichnet von Steurer Oberlieutenant.
by STEURER, Gotthard.
32 folding lithographed plates. 12mo, orig. green cloth, stamped in blind & gilt. N.p.: n.d. [but probably Munich: ca. 1855-65]. First edition and a very fine and fresh copy. The attractive plates depict soldiers in various standing positions (at attention, loading a gun, preparing to shoot, etc.), proper formations for parades, marching, preparing for attack, defensive positions, etc. Fine copy from the Wittelsbach library of the dukes and kings of Bavaria. This seems to be a rare book with no copy in WorldCat. . (Inventory #: HillBibl-4943)
