KENTISH ( Thomas ) The Pyrotechnist's Treasury ; or, complete art of making fireworks.
Chatto & Windus,, 1878 FIRST EDITION, with 16 plates, pages xii, 200, 40 (adverts dated July 1878), 8vo, original blue cloth, decorated in silver : very light foxing on first and last few leaves, the upper one and a half inches of the outer joints worn but the inner joints intact without any weakness, light evidence of bookplate having been removed from the front endpaper, in spite of these minor points this is still a very good to nice copy of a book rarely found in fine condition. An early issue (we know of no copy with adverts of an earlier date) of this pyrotechnic classic. Kentish, claiming thirty-five years experience, provides full details of equipment and methods of construction for a range of fireworks. "Despite having first been printed over 100 years ago this remains one of the greatest classic how-to-do pyrotechnic books that has ever been written. Much of its detailed description and practical advice is as relevant today as it was in the latter part of the 19th century. The reviewer of the reprint, American Pyrotechnist Fireworks News, September 1976, said 'One could well believe that he is reading a recently-published new book on fireworks, except that none printed in the intervening 71 years are so concise, detailed and painstakingly illustrated.'" - Philip, A Bibliography of Firework Books, K010.1. 1878 (Book ref. 12018) £2250.00
