Description: ARCHITECTURE -- CHIMNEYS -- PRINCIPES NOUVEAUX pour remédier à l’incommodité de la fumée dans la construction des cheminées, & pour empêcher de fumer celles qui sont construites, sans las reconstruire, & à peu de frais. Avec une méthode facile & claire par laquelle toute personne sera en état de diriger les ouvrier dans ce travail. Par., Didot, 1774. 15 pp. W. 2 fold. engr. plates. Old grey wrps., untrimmed. The remedies proposed in the book are basically the construction of chimney tubes creneled at the edge, so that the entering air forms vortexes, thus contributing to the elimination of smoke, the use of flaps in the chimney for the same purpose (already proposed by Gauger, but here three are used in place of one) and the installation of two lateral air tubes to drain smoke from the corners of the chimney, where it mostly forms. All this is taught in an easy language and probably reached the purported scope, i. e. to be understandable even by the most ignorant manual workers. - Firts and only edition. Not in Barbier, Cicognara, Kat. Berl., Fowler.
