This was the property of Charles A. King, Jr. , who was a cadet at the U. S. Military Academy, and later an instructor there. He also served with the AEF in France during World War 1. He has wrapped the book in paper, having worn out or removed the cloth. There are extensive pencil notes througout the text. One would assume these are notes he used in teaching at the academy. Included, is the much scarcer booklet of plates. Wonderful line drawings/plates of various artillery pieces and photographs of accessories. I have been unable to determine if Charles was the son of author Charles A. King, but I believe so. The book is not in the best condition as far as the binding, but an interesting historical connection. ; Small 4to 9" - 11" tall; 604+plates pages
