Amsterdam: P. den Hengst et fils, 1824

Catalogue des livres de la bibliothèque de feu Mr. Jean Henri van Swinden, ... contenant les meilleurs ouvrages sur la philosophie, les sciences, l'histoire et la littérature, suivi du Catalogue de quelques instrumens ayant fait partie de son cabinet, et de sa collection très-rare de poids et de mesures ...

Van Swinden (1746-1823), Dutch mathematician and natural scientist, was in 1798-99 a member of the commission initiated by the French National Assembly to determine the foundations of a new metric system (namely the one that has by and large proved its worth in the natural sciences and in everyday life in continental Europe to this day).

Condition: The book is fresh, paper quality and printing are very good. The booklet binding is brittle and chipped at the spine.
Pages 157-160 are missing (!), with page 160 = blank page.

Note: The Ghent University Library copy is available online.
