This title was originally published in paperback but a collector has long ago added a hardcover binding to protect the volume.

The full title is “THE ZOUAVE DRILL. BEING A COMPLETE MANUAL OF ARMS FOR THE USE OF THE RIFLED MUSKET, WITH EITHER THE PERCUSSION CAP, OR MAYNARD PRIMER. CONTAINING ALSO THE COMPLETE MANUAL OF THE SWORD AND SABRE. BY COL. E. E. ELLSWORTH. LATE COLONEL OF THE REGIMENT OF THE NEW YORK FIRE ZOUAVES, AND LATE COLONEL COMMANDING OF THE UNITED STATES ZOUAVE CADETS, OF CHICAGO. WITH A BIOGRAPHY OF HIS LIFE.” The book was published by T. B. Peterson and Brothers of Philadelphia in 1861.

The hardcovers that now hold the original paperbound publication have a marbled center with blue cloth corners and spine. Title is embossed in gold on the spine.

The paper cover of the book has several large ink blotches on it as well as surface dirt from age and use. The volume meas. approx. 5.00 x 7.50 inches and runs 62 pages.

Binding is very good. Paper has toned with age and several pages bear period pencil notations. These notations compare the different manual of arms positions to Scott’s and Hardee’s published manuals.

Back cover of this item has advertising for other military titles.

Though published in 1861 this manual was printed after Col. Ellsworth’s death as his demise is mentioned in the biography section of the book.  [ad] [ph:L]
