The Modern Incandescent Electric Lamp


    NOW the Swan-Edison monopoly is a thing of the past, the manufacture of incandescent lamps is assuming considerable proportions; consumers are already deluged with applications for orders by continental firms, and it is to be hoped that we shall not long be obliged to send abroad for what can so easily be made in our own country. The information in this book is of a unique and valuable nature, and the author seems to have a thoroughly practical acquaintance with the subject, and goes into minute details when dealing with all the different branches of the manufacture. Indeed “trade secretism”seems to have been abolished in these pages, and the wealth of technical information here met with will go far towards the production of a more efficient lamp than those at present in use.
