I am looking for someone who has a copy of the British “Treatise on Ammunition” dated between 1869 and 1876 (inclusive).
I have access to the editions of 1877, 1878, 1881, 1887 and 1892 but am specifically looking for an edition between 1869 and 1876.
I seek ORIGNAL source documents containing the specifications of the Adams Mark I cartridge. I already have the information from the British LoCs and Capt. Orde Browne’s 1870 manual on Boxer ammunition.
The Adams Mark I cartridge specifications evolved significantly in the 10+ years it was in service and none of the currently available reference works is correct (each reflecting a specification at a particular point in time). Thus the search for ORIGINAL (i.e.: contemporary) source documents.
