Dynamo Electric Machinery

    Article metrics


    A COMPARISON of the size of the fourth edition of this book with that of the first, which appeared in 1884, supplies a good illustration of the rate at which the use of dynamo electric machinery, and our knowledge of its laws, have advanced during the past eight years. The 408 pages in 1884 have grown to 832, with a collection of twenty-nine excellent plates in addition at the end of the book, representing another 60 pages; in fact, the book has now become so portly that it would have been well had the matter been put into two volumes.
