    The Pyrotechnist's Treasury The Complete Art of Making Fireworks.

    Second Edition, Revised and Enlarged.
    The uncommon, definitive second edition of Kentish's classic of pyrotechnics - "one of the greatest classic how-to-do-pyrotechnic books that have ever been written" (Philip) - just four copies of this edition recorded on Copac - NLS, Oxford, Cambridge, and TCD - no copy in BL; OCLC adds 11 copies in the US. First published in 1878, the text of the second edition was expanded by 18 pages, and 10 plates added, as the new preface explains; "The present edition contains much additional information, many fresh illustrations, and several pieces of a construction entirely new … For the rest, I have carefully revised the book throughout, and have supplied the minutest information in every instance in which it appeared to be defective … The work appears to me now complete".
