Early full calf. 8vo. vi, 352pp, 8pp index. Illustrated with an engraved frontispiece and 16 plates (complete). Third edition of this popular artisan's recipe book which went through at least 6 editions between 1738 and 1799. It contains sections on refining, assaying, casting of gold and silver; enameling and other tips for jewelers; experiments for casting in silver and other metals, wax, plaster of paris, etc.; glassmaking; pottery; bookbinding; tips for cutlers, pewterers, brasiers, joiners, turners, etc; information on "the Art of preparing Rockets, Crackers, Fire-Globes, Stars, Sparks, etc for Recreative Fire-Works"; a section of perspective and much more. This copy lacks pages 137 to 146 which appear to deal with enameling and brasswork. The leather covers are heavily worn with much chipping and scuffing. Internally the pages are quite worn with some spotting and soiling and a few folded corners. The first section of text up to page 17 is loose. Plate #7 across from page 266 lacks a small piece in the upper left corner. All of the plates are present and in reasonably good condition. Four pages in the fireworks section are cropped at the right side affecting some of the wording but not much. The last page of the index is defective with a large section of text missing at the right side. Scarce. N° de ref. de la librería 7678
