Notes


Second edition of "a beautiful wholly engraved book on practical mathematics, fortification, mensuration, weights and monetary values of the Netherlands, France, Italy and Spain. The first work, with hundreds of engraved geometric figures and diagrams; fortification plans, elevations, cross-sections and perspective views; and tables, covers geometry, arithmetic, trigonometry, mensuration and fortification. The second work expands the first's brief account of arithmetic and adds sections on weights, measures and monetary units for France, Italy, the Low Countries, England, Germany and Spain". Extraordinary production, entirely engraved in a very handsome way, also for the very large format of the copper plates required (up to 44 x 56 cm. for the double page engravings). The engravings are presumably by the hand of a relative as the the title-page of the second book is signed "Michel Luders scrip. et sculp.". The books seem to have been published as separate plates: several plates contain an 'avis au lecteur' and most plates have Luders' name.Very nice binding containing a rare and very impressive work on fortification.
