pages all the instruction necessary lor the fjuides, and the information being
disconnected with other matters, is more readily referred to and more easily
acquired." — Louisville Journal.

Regiment U. S. Infantry. 1 vol. 12mo. Three large plates,

cloth. §1.

"The movements of armies cng.nged in battle have often been compared 1o
those of the chess-board, and wo cannot doubt that there are certain principles
of tactics in actual war as in that g.amo, which may determine the result inde-
jx-ndently, in a great measure, of the personal strengtli and courage of the men
engaged. The difference betr>een these principles .as applied in tho American
Army and in the Austrian, is so wide as to have suErtrested the translation of
tho work before us, which. contains tho whole result of the famous Field-Marshal
Kadetzkt's cxncrienco for twcniy-flvc years, while in supremo command in
Italy." — A^V?/' Yor^- (''^ufury.

Rhymed Tactics, by "Gov."

1 vol. ISnio, paper. With portraits. 25 cents.

" It -svill strike the military man, familiar with the tedious routine of drill,
by theory, practice, and memory, as a most unique and valuable method of
strengthening the latter, Avith the. mental exertion. The author is a
thorough soldier, and his ability as a rhymester will be conceded by any intelli-
gent reader." — Nexo York Leader,

"Our author deserves great credit for the ingenuity ho has displayed in
putting into verse a Manual which would at first glance seem to defy the most
persistent efforts of the rhymer. The book contains a number of illustrations
representing some of the more difficult positions, in the figures of which por-
traits of several prominent officers of the New York Volunteers may be recog-
nized.''— ^eio York Times.

emy, by Lieutenant Edward Simpson, U. S. N. Second edi-
tion, revised and enlarged. 1 vol. 8vo, plates and cuts, half
morocco. •$>.

"As the compiler has char^o of tlio instruction in N.aval Gnnncry at tho
Jj'.'xval Academy, his v/ork, la the compibtion cf which he has cousulted a large
number of eminent authorities, is probably well suited f(ir the purpose designed
by it— namely, tlio circulation of information which many officers, owing to
constant service afloat, may not have been able to collect. In simple end plain
lansuasce it gives instruction as to cannon, gun carriages, gun powder, projectiles,
f.izes, locks, and primers; the theory of pointing guns, rifles, the practice of
ftunnery, and a great varioty of other siinlar matters, interesting to fighting
men on eea and land." — Washington Daily Glohe.

" A vast amount of information is conveyed in ?. readable and familiar form.
The illuotrations are excellent, and many of them unique, being colored or^
bronzed so a^ to represent various military arms, ic, with more than j.hoto-
grapbic literalness.'" — Washingioii Star.

"It is scarcely necessary for ns to say that a work prepared by a writer so
practically conversant with all the subjects of which he treats, and who has such
ft reputation fjr scientific ability, cannot fail to take at once a high place nmon^
the text-books of our naval service. It has been approved by the Secretary of
tho Navy, and will henceforth be one of the standard authorities on all matters
connected with Naval Gunnery."— Jv^etc York Herald.

"Tho book itself is admirably arranged, characterized by great simplicity
and clearness, and certainly at this time will be a most valuable one to oiScer.4
of tho Navy."' — Boston Coni^nercial Bulletivi,.

"Originally designed as a text-book, it is now enlarged, and so far modified
in its plan as to make it an invaluable band-book for the naval officer. It Is
compi-ehensive — preserving the cream of many of the best books on ordnance
and navnl gunnery, and is printed and illustrated ia the most admirable man-
ner."' — Xeio York V/orld,
