THE present volume is a continuation of a volume on preliminaries of coal mining, etc., compiled and published in the same way as the present volume, which was reviewed in these columns in June last year. Practically the same criticism that was applied to the previous volume holds good for the one now before us. It deals almost entirely with American methods and American practice, though a few pages are devoted here and there to English methods by way of directing the attention of American engineers to them, though it cannot be said that the British illustrations which have been suggested are at all typical of the best British practice.
