Abstract:

This inclusion in the special bibliography series is intended to reflect holdings of the Morris Swett Technical Library which cover the development of artillery through schematics as a visual means of illustration up to the period of World War One. This emphasis on scale drawings cuts a wide swathe across doctrinaire lines so as to view artillery as a single combat arm. Field guns, siege cannon, howitzers, mortars, fixed coastal defense barbettes, and disappearing guns are considered as one. Too, classifications of field artillery, coastal artillery, or air defense artillery are considered in the breech so that schematics andor portions are considered the same. Only books which include these schematics are cited. If a page is shown this indicates it is interspersed within the textual treatment. A plate number is indicated if the illustration is to be found in other than a numbered section. This bibliography reflects holdings and is not intended to cover the subject in an exhaustive sense.
