Book Description Printed for the author by Alexander Niven, New York, 1811. First Edition. Tall 8vo, original leather backed boards, illustrated with 18 copper-engraved plates, [18], [ix]-xxxii, [33],-288 pp. Covers rubbed, corners worn, bottom corner of top cover broken off, top hinge weak, spine scuffed; darkening and foxing to contents, occasional dampstains, in rare untrimmed state in the original boards, partially unopened.

This is a rare American work on bridge building, which presents PopeâÂÂs plan to build a "flying pendent lever bridge" over the Hudson River. This is only the second American book on the subject, following PealeâÂÂs work, "An Essay on Building Wooden Bridges" (1797). Pope includes a discussion of the history of bridges in different parts of the world, and follows with a description of his flying pendent bridge. While PopeâÂÂs bridge design may have been unappreciated at the time, it became the basis for the cantilever bridge. Seller Inventory # 100444
