The Duelling Handbook
« on: November 14, 2009, 10:50:39 PM »
So at Half Price Books tonight I found a Dover paperback edition of a book called The Duelling Handbook in the nineteenth century American history section. The edition of the book is a 2007 reprinting of an 1829 duelling manual titled The Only Approved Guide Through all the Stages of a Quarrel, which was first printed in London (so the book at Half Price Books was obviously not shelved correctly). The original 1829 edition is available on Google Books for free: http://books.google.com/books?id=Ojj4949GSlQC&printsec=frontcover&dq=%22Only+Approved+Guide+through+all+the+stages+of+a+quarrel%22#v=onepage&q=&f=false
