This is Historical Arms Series No. 23, a monograph on the experiments of Sir William Congreve with rockets as a military weapon. The British army and navy eventually made rather wide use of them, notably, as this booklet details, in the Chesapeake campaign in North America in 1814. Included are contemporary drawings and models of Congreve's various designs.
