Philadelphia: Lippincott, 1862. Third. Hard Bound. Rebound nicely. Has had some use. Text evenly toned. / None. Item #559
This a third edition of 1862. Everything you might want to know about ordnance and artillery operations. Very technical with weights, sizes, ranges, etc for all types of ordnance. Chock full of tables, drawings, etc. If you are an artilleryman, you must have this manual.
The manual is signed twice by a James Sullivan. The one on page 269 also has the annotation of "Mexico." My data base contains 269 Union James Sullivans so an exact pindown is impossible. The one Mexico in the U.S. that comes to mind is a town in Missouri. There was a man by that name who served in a Missouri battery. Far fetched? Probably.
