  • Description: This introduction to early artillery is a most welcome addition to the very little that has been written on artillery of the 15th and 16th century. It could be considered two books: The notebook of John Lad compiled in 1586 while he was a student of artillery transcribed with his instructions, notes, recipes, and drawings. This is preceded by a scholarly overview of English artillery design in the 16th century. Tudor Artillery, 1485-1603 by Adrian B. Caruana. 40 pp., tables, 30 ill.
