Note:'In the person of Jakob Leupold (1674-1727), there was a man who was the first to undertake the difficult task of passing on the knowledge of scholars and mathematicians directly to craftsmen and artists. His work encompassed nine books, providing a practical picture of the state of the art of the 17th to 18th centuries. In his Theatrum Pontificale - 'Showplace of Bridges and Bridgebuilding', Leupold also made statements regarding the theory of flexure.'
