Beschreibung und Theorie des englischen Cylinder-Gebläses nebst einigen Vorschlägen zur Verbesserung dieser Maschine
Seven fine folding engraved plates. xiv, [2], 115, [1] pp. Large 4to, cont. marbled half-sheep & marbled boards (minor foxing), flat spine gilt. Munich: J. Lindauer, 1805. First edition and quite rare. Baader (1763-1835), a famous civil engineer, mining expert, and Chief of the Bavarian Mining Council, resided in England and Scotland from 1786 to 1794, where he studied the most recent technological developments, both in mining and metallurgy. While in Edinburgh, he designed an improved hydraulic powered blowing engine for blast furnaces that allowed higher temperatures, based on the fan originally developed by John Wilkinson (1728-1808). This became known as the Baadersches Geblaese. His greatest contribution to science was, however, his devotion, through propaganda and the power of his position, to the building of railways in Bavaria. The present work is concerned with Baader's final work on the fan and the improvements he has made to it. Fine copy with a small ownership inscription on title inoffensively blacked-out. WorldCat locates no copy in North America. ❧ A.D.B., I, pp. 725-26. Poggendorff, I, 80-81.
