Recherches sur les moyens de perfectionner les canaux de navigation, et sur les nombreux avantages de petits canaux
Paris: Dupain-Triel, ans VII, 1799. First edition in French, 8vo, pp. xvi, 247, [1]; 6 engraved folding plates, 1 engraved folding map; nice copy in contemporary full mottled calf, smooth gilt-decorated spine laid out in 6 compartments, red morocco label in 1. Translated from the English by François de Récicourt, this edition includes a letter to François de Neufchateau, French Minister of Finance, proposing a canal in the Calais Department of France from Ambleteuse to Guines (pages 209-224). This is the only substantial work ever published by this pioneer of steam navigation, though his pamphlet, Torpedo War and Submarine Explosions, published in 1810, revolutionized naval warfare. Howes F-418; Sabin 26202.
