Gardner D. Hiscox|2020.05.01
A fascinating compendium of early 20th century mechanical devices, this expansive work ranges from basic hooks and levers to complex machinery used in steam, motive, hydraulic, air, and electric power, navigation, gearing, clocks, mining, and construction. More than 1,800 engravings include simple illustrations and detailed cross-sections. First published in 1899, this is a reprint of the 16th edition from 1921, which is the enlarged and improved standard edition.
