Description

Benjamin Henry Latrobe (1764-1820) was one of the founders of the engineering profession in America. This book is the first detailed treatment of his engineering projects as well as a pioneering attempt to make available a collection of early American technical drawings. The excellence of Latrobe's draftsmanship and the rarity of comprehensive graphic records for early American engineering make this collection a particularly valuable addition to the history of technology.
