The instrument maker, Veit Balthasar Henning (1706–1762), also published an important illustrated instrument book in Nuremberg in 1756, ‘Sammlung nützlicher Machinen und Instrumenten nebst deren Erklärung aus dem Französischen, Englischen und anderen Sprachen ins Teutsche übersezt’, which went through several editions, all of which are rare.
