The American Boys Handy Book

Mentioned this in a comment on the fighting kites article. There seemed to be interest, and then I found a version online, and it's out of copyright so you don't have to feel guilty about downloading it, so here it is for your amusement. It is equal parts informative, inspiring, and horrifying, and has lovely illustrations.
