NY. Printed by T. & W. 8vo. 360 pp. Original paper-backed drab boards (rubbed), printed paper spine label (rubbed). Very good untrimmed copy, in as near original condition as one might hope to find. First edition. Inscribed on the title page "E.W. Laight from General Swift, 1815" (probably in the hand of the recipient). Joseph Gardner Swift (1783-1865) was promoted to brigadier-general for service during the War of 1812, became the army's chief engineer, and was superintendent of West Point, 1816-1818. This manual was accompanied by an atlas of 41 plates, not present here.
