About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: The Compleat Gunner

Publisher: S. R. Publishers, Ltd, East Ardsley, Yorkshire, UK

Publication Date: 1971

Binding: Cloth

Book Condition: Very Good

Dust Jacket Condition: Fair


88 + 26 pages with 4 plates. Reprint of the 1672 book. Fine in NF DW. Seems to be a composite work largely lifted from Siemienowicz, Ufano and others. It contains a 26 page section concerning "artificial fire-works for recreation" but pales in comparison to Babington, and even Bate in that regard. None of the plates relate to fireworks. The book offered here is in an excellent state of preservation, and not often seen despite being printed relatively recently. Bookseller Inventory # 000475

Shipping Terms:

Orders usually ship within 2 business days. Shipping costs are based on books weighing 2.2 LB, or 1 KG. This is a function of the ABE program rather than a reflection of our real shipping costs. Most of our more popular books weigh more than this (e.g. Pyrotechnica Publications items). If your book order is heavy or oversized, we WILL contact you to let you know extra shipping is required. Overseas shipments cannot be shipped via surface mail (the 21-36 business days option listed in the ABE shopping cart) because there is no longer a surface mail option from the United States. So, please do not select this option if you are outside of the USA. Only insured air mail is available for these overseas orders.
