Traite de Fortification Souterraine, Suivi de Quatre Memoires sur les Mines; Par le Chef de Bataillon du Genie Mouze, Ancient Commandant de Mineurs
Chez Levrault, Schoell et Cie., et chez Magimel, Paris, 1804. First Edition. Half-Leather. Very Good/No Jacket. Nicely rebacked with new endpapers, original boards preserved. Royal Engineers Library stamp on half-title and title pages, illegible ink name on title page, corner of title page restored. An exceptional copy. 1804 Half-Leather. viii, 428, 20 fold-out plates. An excellent treatise on underground fortifications and the use of mines and other explosives in their defense. The included plans are very detailed, and some are hand-colored to designate particular sections and functions of fortifications. The book was written not by a military scholar, but by a soldier involved in this type of warfare firsthand. Not in Avery Memorial Library Catalog.
