Very large and rare antique copper engraved view of the machine de Marly, near Paris, by C. Rare detailed plan of the machine with references from 1 to 26 explaining the different parts of the mechanism. The cartouche explains in detail the functions of the machine. This machine was a gigantic pumping system of the waters of the Seine intended for the hydraulic supply of the gardens of the Château de Marly and the park of Versailles. Built between 1681 and 1682, during the reign of Louis XIV by the master shipwright and mechanic of Liège, Rennequin Sualem, according to the plan of Arnold de Ville, it was inspired by the digging machines of the mines of Liège and Harz, which made it one of the most complex machines of its time. It functioned for 133 years, but never managed to supply the expected flow for long, and was replaced in 1817 by several more efficient successive pumps, until electro-pumps in 1968.
