Hendrik Stevin (1641-after 1668), son of Simon Stevin, was a creditable mathematician. He was an engineer in the Dutch army and developed the plan to use the Oude Rijn between Utrecht and Leiden as a barge canal (1663). Hendrik Stevin made the earliest known plan to close off the Zuiderzee (1667). That plan was not feasible at the time, but inspired other plans that led to Lely's work. The Stevinsluizen are named after him. Very rare, especially with the text-volume. In very good condition. - Bierens de Haan, 4546.
