KOCH, MATHIAS. - Vorschlage zur Erzielung grosserer Sicherung vor Feuersgefahr vorzuglich auf dem Lande durch umfassende Benutzung von chemischen, technischen und anderen zweckdienlichen Hulfsmitteln.

Vienna, Hirschfeld 1836. Octavo, later but not recent cloth and boards with the title panel of the wrapper mounted; 78pp and folding frontispiece. An appealing copy with the bookplate and impressive stamp - this on the back of the title - of Franz, Count (later Prince) of Thun and Hohenstein. ¶ Only edition of this rare critical - often very critical - review of current practice in fire protection and firefighting and proposals for improvements. Koch covers a lot in a fairly short space: building materials; protective gear; insurance. He describes and illustrates a new and cheap pump and promotes an 'artificial water' which seems to be based on lye.
