On offer is a superb notebook, most likely used by a mechanical or electro-mechanical engineer at the turn of the 20th century. Measuring 8 inches by 5.25 inches and containing 191 pages plus index, the notebook is 100% complete. There is wear damage to the spine but it is intact as are all of the pages within. The handwriting is neat and very legible. This notebook is written entirely in French. The extensive notes and explanations are accompanied by dozens of carefully drawn, detailed illustrations. The illustrations in turn are all carefully and neatly labeled. The sections are carefully delineated and there is an index of the 191 pages at the back of the book. The science of engineering had reached a very state in France by the 19th century. French engineers and inventors had created many of the things that we take for granted today. Both the Suez Canal and the Panama Canal were undertaken by French firms. Items such as the parachute, stethoscope, photograph, processes such as pasteurization and cinemas and chemicals such as Aspirin all have their rooks in the engineering laboratories of France. In the 19th century, France had created a number of highly-regarded institutes, known as grandes écoles to further develop and advance education in new fields of sciences and technologies This notebook is a fine example of the state of mechanical engineering science at the turn of the 20th century in France. It would be an excellent reference work for a historian studying the evolution of mechanical engineering science, particularly as practiced in France.; French Manuscript; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall; KEYWORDS: HISTORY OF, SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY IN THE EARLY 20TH CENTURY, LATE 19TH CENTURY, EUROPE, FRANCE, FRENCH ENGINEERS, GRANDES ECOLES DE FRANCE; ENGINEERING IN FRANCE IN THE 19TH CENTURY; SUEZ CANAL; PANAMA CANAL, MECHANICAL ENGINEERING, ELECTRO-MECHANICAL ENGINEERING, TECHNICAL ILLUSTRATION AT THE TURN OF THE 20TH CENTURY, HANDWRITTEN, MANUSCRIPT, DOCUMENT, LETTER, AUTOGRAPH, WRITER, HAND WRITTEN, DOCUMENTS, SIGNED, LETTERS, MANUSCRIPTS, DIARY, DIARIES, JOURNALS, PERSONAL HISTORY, SOCIAL HISTORY, HISTORICAL, HOLOGRAPH, WRITERS, AUTOGRAPHS, PERSONAL, MEMOIR, MEMORIAL, ANTIQUITÉ, CONTRAT, VÉLIN, DOCUMENT, MANUSCRIT, PAPIER ANTIKE, BRIEF, PERGAMENT, DOKUMENT, MANUSKRIPT, PAPIER OGGETTO D'ANTIQUARIATO, ATTO, VELINA, DOCUMENTO, MANOSCRITTO, CARTA ANTIGÜEDAD, HECHO, VITELA, DOCUMENTO, MANUSCRITO, PAPEL
