THIS book is composed mainly of detailed descriptions, with comprehensive maintenance and testing schedules, of standard American products ; the thoroughness which is characteristic of American trade booklets is evident in the treatment. Other than the omission of oxygen instruments and of the absence of synchroscopes from the chapter “Tachometers and Synchronizers”, the volume covers most of the American instruments in general use. It is excellently illustrated and reproduced, and in this respect is marred only by a number of proof-reading errors.
