Concentrating on civil construction, he considers transportation, shipbuilding, waterways and watersupply, ornamental fountains, windmills and pumps, epitomizing their state on the eve of the Industrial Revolution." The work remained the standard authority on practical water engineering long after most of the techniques it describes became obsolete''.

(Amst.), n.publ., ±1862-1889, collection containing 30 (fold.) manuscript numbered (manuscript) maps, plans, profiles and diagrams mainly depicting/ concerning the construction of the North Sea Canal (Noordzeekanaal), some engr./ lithogr. material and otherwise pen and (colour) ink (and watercolour), various (large) sizes, some w. Huët's blindstamp, contemp. hcl. w. giltlettered mor. title-piece, large folio.

- Some occas. sl. foxing/ soiling and closed marginal tears; a few maps w. tear on fold.

= Personal and possibly unique collection of civil mechanical engineer Adrien Huët (1836-1899), who designed an open junction between Amsterdam and the North Sea, without locks. His plans however were refuted and a connection with locks was built between 1865 and 1876. This collection, with on upper pastedown the manuscript dedication "Aan het Koninklijk Instituut van Ingenieurs, van A. Huët", contains some printed maps/ plans with designs drawn in, and for the most part manuscript designs and diagrams, which in their turn are partly the manuscript precursors of maps published later on in print. In those cases manuscript annotations in lower corner explain its origins. All designs are by A. Huët but many are drawn by H. van Bruggen (those sheets w. "geteekend[/ get.] door H. van Bruggen"). Most concern the North Sea Canal (and incl. 5x the related matter of the (partial) poldering of the Zuiderzee), two depict a new waterway in Rotterdam/ Hoek van Holland and three show plans for a new railway station situated in the Amsterdam IJ harbour area. Contents: 1. "Nieuwe Waterweg van Rotterdam naar Zee" (pen and ink, 36x93 cm., publ. in De Nieuwe Waterweg van Rotterdam naar zee, Rott., 1872); 2. "Hoek van Holland. Algemeen Plan. Lengte Profil.
