Achievements in Engineering

Nature volume 44, pages 147149 | Download Citation



THE object of this book is to describe some of the principal engineering works carried out during the last fifty years at home and abroad. The author has avoided technical phraseology to a great extent, thus making a very interesting subject as clear as may be to the general reader. Much subject-matter has been gleaned from many sources, and these are amply enumerated in the preface.
