I actually own a first edition of this, which is very slightly different (this electronic version is the second edition).

Harrison appears in my forthcoming publication.

I should add that this is the first comprehensive description (known to me) of the British sword feats, later described by Waite in 1880. Harrison preceded him by 15 years (1st Ed was 1865, when Waite was at the height of his Assault at Arms career and just starting his own school). Waite and Harrison knew each other.
