    Ezekiel Baker: Remarks on Rifle Guns; Being the Result of Upwards of Fifty Years' Practice and Observation: with Specific Remarks on Fowling Pieces, The Percussion Lock, and Fire Arms in General... (London: Joseph Mallett, 1829), tenth edition, 251 pages plus color plates and charts, black half-cloth with marbled boards and a brown title plate with gilt lettering affixed to the front board, 8vo (approximately 5.5" x 8.5"), no dust jacket (as issued). The copy presented here is near very good. The boards show noticeable wear to the edges, corners and spine, and there is significant rubbing. However, the textblock is largely free of flaws despite mild ghosting at the beginning and end of the text. Previous owner's bookplate affixed to rear pastedown. A fascinating early manual on rifle management fit for any gun collector or fan of eclectic books.
