This edition was published in 1996 and contains dozens of illustrations, tables, and formulas for making every kind of firework imaginable.

What makes this edition unique is a section containing a fascinating correspondence between Weingart and Orville Carlisle, credited with being the inventor of the toy rocket. An invaluable book and a necessity for every serious fireworks maker. 136 pages, soft cover. Shipping weight 2 lbs.
