I found your book “La militare architettura” by typing “art” into the search bar. Our books are quite similar. To begin, they both are quite heavy and massive, as well as though. These physical characteristics already convey well the theme of military fortifications, which is the main subject and second common factor in both our works. Our books focus both on a theoritical and technical approach of fortifications, they both give a basic understanding of military defenses buildings as well as many illustrations and geometrical drawings of fortresses. Also, they were written during the same period about only a bit more than a decade apart. It is quite interesting to see how similar two books can be even if they are written in different languages. It suddenly makes sense why Jean du Breuil has specifically defined fortifications as an art which is universal.

I came across your book “Neü-herfürgegebene Kriegsarchitektur” by typing “fortifications” in the search bar. I found that your book shares a lot of similarities with my book “L’ Art universel des fortifications” from Jean du Breuil. The two works have in common the subject of military fortifications. They both were written almost at the same time, about only one year apart. Both works put the emphasis on theoritical ways of building and enhancing military defenses, they both explain and describe methods on building fortifications. In addition, both books also possess drawings and sketches of fortifications. They actually seem to serve the same purpose, which is to illustrate and teach efficient ways of conceiving resilient fortifications, but in a different language and a slightly different manner.
