Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

Excerpt from Ancient and Modern Methods of Arrow-Release When I began collecting data illustrating the various methods of releasing the arrow from the bow as prac ticed by different races, I was animated only by the idlest curiosity. It soon became evident, however, that some importance might attach to preserving the methods of handling a weapon which is rapidly being displaced in all parts of the world by the musket and ri e. While tribes still survive who rely entirely on this most ancient of weapons, using, even to the present day, stone-tipped arrows, there are other tribes using the ri e where the bow still survives. There are, however, entire tribes and nations who have but recently, or within late historic times, abandoned the bow and arrow, its survival being seen only as a plaything for children. It was not till I had accumulated quite a collection of sketches and other memoranda illustrating the methods of arrow-release, not only of existing but of ancient races.

This most unusual book is subtitled Being a Study in the Development of weapons and Appliances of Offence from the Earliest Times to the Age of Gunpowder. It surveys, in considerable detail and with numerous drawings and illustrations, the art and means of aggression developed by man beginning with the bare hand or fist and then the fist reinforced by such appliances as the cestus of Roman times and the knuckleduster of the more enlightened age. From here it moves on to simple, unshafted, hand-held weapons designed for bruising and ripping - clubs, stones etc. The next stage is ‘reinforcing the arm’, the development of hafted weapons and attachment of weapon heads to shafts - tha axe and adze type and the ball and thong such as the bola. These are categorized as striking weapons. Then come the pointed weapons - flint and metal daggers, spears, tridents and the like. So we are taken on a stage by stage journey through the whole range of weaponry - grappling hooks, cutting weapons, throwing spears, javelins, harpoons, catapults, blowpipes and the means of throwing or discharging them. The sheer variety of means of dealing aggressively with your opponent, when they are spelled out in detail, is remarkable, and there are many odd looking weapons illustrated. In the detailed study and analysis of its subject this book can have no rival.
