- La tour de trois cents mètres : planches, by Gustave Eiffel. The Eiffel Tower, the centrepiece for the 1889 Exposition Universelle in Paris, was designed and constructed by French engineer Gustave Eiffel’s firm, and probably first conceived by Eiffel’s young assistant, the Swiss engineer Maurice Koechlin (1856-1946). The tower took 26 months to build and was completed on 31 March 1889. Its construction was facilitated by a large number of extremely precise working drawings, prepared under Koechlin’s supervision, which made it possible to assemble the prefabricated components on site without much modification. In 1900, in time for the new Exposition Universelle in Paris, Eiffel published a two-volume work on the tower, with plates of the working drawings and accompanying text. Imaged here is the volume of plates only, copy number 379 of 500.
- This copy of the volume of plates was donated to the Engineering Department in Trinity College Dublin by Gustave Eiffel
