Notes

First and only Edition. Scarce, OCLC records a copy at Kansas State University only, not apparently in the BNF. Souvenir of the subterranean warfare exercise held at the Regimental School of Engineering, Arras, in 1876. Lists the personnel, shows the various fortifications and the mining operations to assault, and countermining to defend, them, both figuratively and diagrammatically; details the mining equipment, including ventilation and drilling machinery, and techniques; and includes a certain amount of caricature and typically facetious army humour. A very attractive and unusual item.
