Oblong 4to. b/we plates.
This is a reprint of an 1851 American reprint of a section of a larger work published in Germany by Rudolph Garrigue. It featured thousands of engravings by Henry Winkler and others of all areas of 19th century technology, as well as literature, arts, and other sciences. The thirty-two plates in this reprint contain multiple images on each plate. It’s a sort of visual history of marine technology, from ships of classical times to modern steam-powered vessels. No publishing info., but obviously a 20th Century reprint. A wonderful source of images. Fine condition.
