Work on the art of warfare. Palau notes that this work is often attributed to the General of Artillery, Juan Barbaza. Interestingly, a contemporary bookseller's ticket for a Cuban bookseller is present on the front pastedown: "T. Howson. Encuadernador y fabricante de libros en blanco en la Calle del Obispo numero 22. Habana." A rare work - only three copies are listed in OCLC, at the College of William of Mary, and the national libraries of Spain and Chile. PALAU 59368.
