Leupold published an encyclopaedia of technology in ten volumes, of which this is the eighth, with each volume being independent of the others. This one illustrates calculating instruments and machines and surveying devices, including those of Schott, Grillet, Leibniz, Poleni, and Leupold himself, with many fine, large plates.
