New York: D. Van Nostrand, 1875. Hardcover. Includes numerous diagrams and woodcuts. Very good in purple cloth boards with gilt title to front board and spine. The spine and edges of the boards have faded to light brown. Minor wear to spine ends and edges of boards. There are a few small dark spots to spine and bottom edge of text block. There are a few spots of foxing to the interior and two facing pages are lightly browned due to a laid-in slip of paper. Filled with practical information for mechanics. 339 pages plus 47 pages of ads. SCI/072810. Very Good.
