Since my recent work on the crossbow and ancient projectile weapons was issued I have obtained additional information concerning the catapult and balista of the Greeks and Romans. I now, therefore, print, in the form of an A ppendix, a revised account of the construction of these two engines. Their history and effects in warfare I have already dealt with. I also append a treatise fully describing the structure, power and management of that remarkable weapon the Turkish composite bow, which I only cursorily alluded to in my book on the crossbow etc. R. P. G. Thirkleijv Park, Thirsk :J an. 1907. 1T he Crossbow, Mediaval ami Modern, Military and Sporting: its Construction, History, and Manaeemcni. With a Treatise on the Balista and Catapult of the A ncients. 220 illustrations. Messrs. Longmans Co., 39 Paternoster Row, London.
