1690 Construction

François Coulomb [attributed to]
(1654-1717)

François Coulomb (1654-1717), a master builder in charge of building education for the cadets of the port of Toulon, belonged to a family of which several generations strongly marked their imprint on the world of naval architecture of the Ancien Diet. This workbook, intended for his son, shows the importance of the family inheritance in the formation of the builders of the time.
