FIRST EDITION. 8vo. [xii], 135 pp. Illustrated throughout, lists 458 bibliographical records in the collection, index; occasional pencil notations add to the information printed. Gilt-stamped navy cloth; binding square and tight. Ivy Trent's copy with her ownership notation on the front free end-paper. Very Good. In this catalogue, compiled with and dedicated to the late Iowa bibliographer Frank Hanlin (1924-1982), Rouse summarizes the history of his book collecting, mostly undertaken between 1953 and 1976. This volume lists the major collection of rare books on the history of hydraulics compiled by Rouse over the course of his career. Rouse's two former books on the history of hydraulics are: History of Hydraulics (1957) and Hydraulics in the United States 1776-1976; both are standard reference works. Nearly 500 volumes from the past 2,000 years are noted in the book, some of which are quite rare.
