    First edition (first printing). A near fine copy in full red leather, stamped on the cover with the coat of arms of King Alfonso XIII of Spain.

According to the Handbook of Ordinance Data (Nov. 15, 1918), the US Army acquired 400 of the sights, but it did not come into wide use. There were two issues of this publication, one for the 1903 Springfield rifle and this, much rarer, Canadian edition--which has fewer pages but substantially similar content. No holdings of this edition are recorded in the WorldCat library database, nor in the Library and Archives Canada. ISBN: 281AIB1025081.
