About This Item

Hardcover. Fine. Illustrated with 1 large folding lithographed plate and 12 double-page lithographed plates. 4to. Modern ¾-blue cloth-backed marbled boards, gilt ruled spine bound in antique style, with gilt lettering and designs in compartments. London: Published by R. Ackermann, 1820. First Edition in English, with additional material. Engineering techniques of the mid-19th century were very sophisticated and many British engineers, such as Henry Maudsley and William Donkin, accepted that Lanz and Béttancourts seminal work had greatly influenced them. The work was originally published in 1808 by Jean Nicholas Pierre Hachette as a text for his engineering students. It complemented his own Programme du cours élémentaire des machines. Hachette taught at the Ecole Polytechnique, the first school that instilled rigorous mathematical training for engineers, and occupied an important role in engineering education in the 19th century. Minor wear to covers and spine; title page soiled and torn repaired; ink library stamp on verso of title, leaf O2, final leaf of text and verso of final plate; o/w Fine.
