Originally published in 1860, this book of military architecture features some truly spectacular examples of Roman and Medieval fortifications including castles, bastions, and camps. This remarkable work is a literal treasure trove of hard-to-find information on a litany of structures and defenses. An essay on military architecture and the various modes of warfare is presented along with details of each conquest. Representative of the best, most heavily fortified embattlements that were constructed from the days of Caesar through the Sixteenth century, this work includes engines of war, towers, cats, walls and wooden ramparts, drawbridges, moats, keeps, and curtain-walls of these castle forts and encampments. It is illustrated with eye views of medieval engagements, numerous sectional drawings as well as plans, and has complete descriptions of these classic wood, stone, and mortar structures revealing their secrets.-Print ed.
