Bouwkundige Leercursus, ten gebruike der Koninklijke Militaire Akademie handleiding tot de kennis der Burgerlijke en Militaire Bouwkunst (Two volumes including Atlas with LXIII plates).
Breda: Nys / Koninklijke Militaire Akademie, 1850. Scarce together. This is the second printing. The work is complete. One volume is a manual and the other (larger) one is an atlas with many b/w plates. Both in original half calf hardback, with marbled boards. Text (manual) volume: viii, 658,  errata. 180 x 120 mm (7 x 4¾ inches). Atlas: unpaginated. 370 x 250 mm (14½ x 9¾ inches).
Condition: Boards of both volumes are quite rubbed and worn, particularly to the corners. Inside the manual there is some ink writing to the title page (most likely a previous owner's name). Page 155 / 156 is detached but present. the volume is lightly foxed throughout. No endpapers / pastedown. The Atlas has had its title page reattached with tape. It is complete with all 63 plates, but they are mostly detached. At the top of each is written the number of the plate in blue crayon. It appears this may have been done when someone has been collating the book. Overall the books are not attractive externally, but are good / very good inside.
