Die Kunst das vergoldete und versilberte Leder zu verfertigen
[Berlin : Rudiger, 1763]. 4to, 26 leaves, 2 fold. plates, divisional title-page only, later mottled brown paper wrappers.
Extracted from “Schauplatz der Kunste und Handwerke”, Berlin, Leipzig, etc 1762 -1805, which was a German translation of the “Description des Arts et Metiers” published by the Academie des sciences, Paris 1761-89. The original French title was L’Art de travailler les cuirs dorés ou argentés (Art of gilding or silvering leather).
This German translation was issued over more than forty years by a variety of publishers in, successively, Berlin, Leipzig, Frankfurt, Nurnberg, and again Berlin. It is very much rarer than the French original.
