Brown's Marine Electrician: for Sea-going Engineers


IN this book “the authors seek to give practical information on such matters as the installation, repair, and use of electric lighting, heating, and other appliances suitable for use in ships.” Apparently the reader is expected to acquire that information from illustrations which seldom show more than the outside appearance of the apparatus, and often show nothing at all but a cast-iron case! There are some more detailed diagrams, but too many of them refer to machines or apparatus which could only now be purchased in the electrical equivalent of the old clothes shop.
