Roberts and Trent, Bibliotheca Mechanica, p. 34; Poggendorf III, 113. FIRST EDITION. "This textbook opens with an extensive historical survey of the history and theory of hydrostatics and hydrodynamics, quoting works by Galileo, Viviani, Castelli, and Guglielmini (whose monumental work is discussed in detail with the observations of Bossut), as well as Varignon, Newton, Daniel Bernoulli, Mariotte, and Béliodor. The first part is dedicated to hydrostatics [...] The second part deals with hydrodynamics with special reference to the works of Newton and Bernoullis, applying theory to 'all subjects of utility.' The third part is devoted to all aspects of the formation and behaviour of rivers, followed by sections on river management, the control of flooding and canals. This is succeeded by sections on draining of marshes, the construction of bridges and dikes, and on hydraulic machines of various sorts." (Roberts & Trent, p.34).
