Part 2 in this convolute is a work by Velsen [first published in 1727, here offered] who attempted to revive Leeghwater's plans. A rare convolute of 8 publications spanning the period 1714 to 1767, especially with the Coleveldt, Eikelenberg, Bicker and Noorlander additions. Very nice engraved maps and plans.
