This readable book discusses the entire subject from history through all the methods of application of power to the details of accessories. The illustrations are very good, clear and fully described. The subdivisions of the matter render reference from page to page easy. The book is written "for the practical information of such persons as have neither the time nor inclination to delve deeper into the subtleties of mechanics than the construction and the management of their machines require," and we can recommend it to anyone interested in the subject.
