Summary

An 1890 handbook for civil engineers, this volume presents sketches and brief descriptions of more than 1,900 mechanical devices. Contents include gears of all kinds, chains and links, cranes, cutting tools, pumps, water wheels, turbines, and much moreall the elements of the increasingly sophisticated industrial and mechanical world of the late 19th century.
