Descripción

First Edition. 34 pp; illus. Original cloth. Signature of former owner on pastedown, else Very Good. For Trautwine's Philadelphia architecture, see Agnes Addison Gilchrist, 'A Trautwine Building Identified' (The Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians, Vol. 17, No. 3 Autumn, 1958, pp. 32-33). 'As early as May, 1832, John Trautwine began working on the layout of Rittenhouse Square, which was a muddy swamp at that time' (Gilchrist 1958). Also see Francis James Dallett, 'Two More Trautwine Buildings, 1830-1831, 1855-1856' (The Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians, Vol. 18, No. 4, Dec., 1959, pp. 161-163). 'In 1828 [Trautwine] entered the office of William Strickland, then the chief civil engineer and architect in [Philadelphia], and soon afterward submitted a design for the Penn township bank, which was accepted, and the execution of which he superintended. Subsequently he assisted Mr. Strickland in the construction of the United States mint and other Philadelphia buildings. In 1844-9 he was associated with George M. Totten in the construction of the canal del Dique, connecting the Magdalena river with the Bay of Carthagena, and again with Mr. Totten, in 1850, he made the surveys for the Panama railroad. On his return to Philadelphia in 1854 he published a report of his work. His works include Method of Calculating the Cubic Contents of Excavations and Embankments (Philadelphia, 1851) [offered here]; Field Practice of Laying out Circular Curves for Railroads (1851); and Civil Engineer's Pocket-Book (1871)' (Famous Americans Web site). Trautwine's folly: 'His findings, published in the Journal of the Franklin Institute (March-May, July-November 1854), concluded that it would never be practical to dig a ship-canal across the Isthmus of Panama' (Philadelphia Buildings Web site). See the article in American Scientist, Vol. 90, No. 5, p. 406, on the Benjamin Franklin Bridge. The Trautwine Family Papers, 1834-1947, are Collection Number 760, Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections, Cornell University Library. N° de ref. de la librería 16319
