A drawing of an archer aiming an arrow through the aperture in a shield, which is part of his bow; a design for a war-machine which, when pulled by two horses, will cause canon-balls to fly out horizontally; a man on horseback charging with a set lance and two other projecting lances fixed to the horse's saddle; the same war-machine as above, with the canon-balls replaced by spiked clubs.
