An appealing and uncommon manual of engineering, issued by the noted firm of C.H. Bailey, based in Newport in Wales. This small illustrated pocket guide, was one of a number of educational works published by the company in the early part of the 20th century, including C. H. Bailey’s Handy book of constants (1906), and their more extensive Book of Useful Information (1906). Some of the illustrations found in that work have been reprinted here.
