= Buijnsters p.73-74: "De tekst is een bewerking door Arend Fokke Simonsz. van Versuch eines Handbuchs der Erfindungen in vele delen door G.C. Busch (1759-1823)". Rare. According to Buijnsters the adaptation was never finished. All plates show 19th cent. professions, i.a. etcher, painter, sculptor, hatter, baker, bookbinder, printer and a gun maker. The plates are probably solely made for this Dutch edition.
