This sale if for an 1852 edition of "Geometrical Drawings For The Use of Mechanics and Schools" with "Illustrations For Drawing Plans, Sections and Elevations of Buildings and Machinery", by William Minifie, Architect, Professor of Drawing in the School of Design of the Maryland Institute.
This is a hardcover book, with an 1852 publication date and it is a fourth edition. The book measures 10.5" x 7" and contains 157 numbered pages. There are 56 steel engraved plates containing over 200 diagrams.
This is a solid book. It has a reasonably strong binding, with no missing or torn pages. It is complete. There is wear to the covers, with a piece of fabric missing on the back. The front is impressed "L. ROGERS", which I believe was the original owner of the book. There is some foxing and yellowing to interior pages, but not a lot and some is to be expected for a book of this age. A solid book, full of illustrations that displays well. A great addition to any Architectural collection.
(Thank you for looking and don't hesitate to email me with any questions you may have)
