THE PRINCIPLES & PRACTICE & EXPLANATION OF THE MACHINERY OF LOCOMOTIVE ENGINES IN OPERATION ON THE SEVERAL LINES OF RAILWAY
This volume with its various specialist chapters on the engineering experiments & progress in the sphere of STEAM LOCOMOTIVES formed the first volume of the new edition of 'TREDGOLD ON THE STEAM ENGINE' (1850). Without doubt the lasting significance of this book is the quality & profusion of the plates, most of which are large fold-out ones consisting of 3 or 4 panels. It is rare to find a book on this subject, of this age and in such good condition.
