8vo. vi, (vii), 112 pp. Original printed wrappers; extremities chipped, including spine ends. Very good. Redtenbacher is considered to be the founder of science based mechanical engineering. "Since most of Redtenbacher's own education was focused on theory, he observed that practical applications in mechanical engineering were being neglected, and that this neglect was detrimental to engineers who wished to work outside of academia. Thus, upon entering the Karlsruhe, Redtenbacher decided to change the format of engineering education. He implemented most of the changes in his Mathematisierung (the machine teachings), which merged mechanical engineering and higher mathematics. Redtenbacher believed that this merger would help bring theory and the practical applications of such theory together. . . Thus, under Redtenbacher's direction, the Karlsruhe became world famous and became the model for engineering education in other universities." KMODDL, "Ferdinand Redtenbacher (1809-1863)."
