Not illustrated. 1841 edition. Excerpt: ... military qualifications at the same ignoble rate as Lycus did those of Alcmena's son. He with no merit held The fame of daring courage; His left hand never knew to raise the shield, Never advanced his right the spear, but held The bow, a coward's weapon; and to flight Was always prompt: no proof of manhood, none Of daring courage, is the bow. Be this as it may, he rejected his application, and the disappointed archer took an early opportunity of rejoining the besieged. One day, whilst stationed on the walls, he espied Philip within bowshot. Hastily inscribing on an arrow, "To Philip's right eye, Aster sends the king a deadly messenger," he drew, and the shot took effect.

The Most Dangerous Book  An Illustrated Introduction to Archery

It’s the ultimate introduction to the world of archery, in a book that turns into an actual bow that shoots paper arrows. All you have to do is unlock and open the upper and lower bow limbs, punch out and fold the arrows, and shoot! But the book is also a rich and lively illustrated history of archery, covering the physics of a bow and arrow; the types of bows used since 4500 BC; arrows from around the world, like the deadly stone arrowheads used by Native Americans, or the Japanese whistling Kabura-ya that helped Samurai signal each other. Here are the great archery battles—Thermopylae in 480 BC, where the Spartan “300” faced a Persian who shot so many arrows they darkened the sky; or the Battle of Leipzig in 1813, the last battle to feature archers—horsemen from the Eurasian steppes—who helped the Russians defeat Napoleon.
