The Telephone

Article metrics


ONLY about four years ago we reviewed a treatise entitled “The Telephone,” by Mr. W. H. Preece and Dr. Maier, which up till recently was the chief manual on its special subject in English. The rapid advance of telephony, however, had rendered large portions of that work completely out of date, and Mr. Preece, with, this time, Mr. A. J. Stubbs as co-worker, has completely re-discussed the subject, and replaced the former treatise by the present.

A Manual of Telephony.

(The Specialists' Series.) By W. H. Preece, and Arthur J. Stubbs. (London: Whittaker and Co., 1893.)
