Giuseppe Antonio Borgnis (1781–1863)

Part of the History of Mechanism and Machine Science book series (HMMS,volume 26)

Abstract

Giuseppe Antonio Borgnis was among the first pupils of the newly-formed Ecole Polytechnique in Paris, after which he transferred his expertise to the University of Pavia in Italy where he enjoyed a long life of teaching activity. He contributed to the development of professional skills with the publication of a 9-volume handbook on machines that included his own classification and the first volume of technical terminology to be used in Europe in the 19th century.
