London John Weale 1856 First Edition Hardcover Good with no dust jacket 
215 pages, tables, red decorated leather with paper label and black cloth spine, wear to covers, binding shaken, paper label is intact and legible, text is clean. Translated from the German by Henry Hamilton Maxwell, First Lieutenant Bengal Artillery. Quite scarce, original edition is available in only a few, mainly European, libraries. From the translator's preface: "I have long experienced, in my professional capacity, the want of a work treating of the tactics of Artillery; and as I have good reason to believe that others have felt the same want, I have been induced to put the treatise by Taubert of the Prussian Artillery into an English dress, being much impressed by the able manner in which that distinguished offficer has handled the subject. I need scarcely draw attention to the fact that the author has been brought up in a good school, and that he is one of a corps of officers who have always been as distinguished for their scientific and practical attainments in their branch of the service, as they have been for gallantry in the field." From the author's preface: "The author delivered . His lectures at the Royal “Allgemeine Kriegsschule” with this idea continually before him, and it has equally been adhered to in the following treatise “On the Use of Field Artillery on Service. ” The work contains all the directions and views which obtain in the Arm, to the exclusion of everything approaching to argument or unauthorised innovation."
