DANIEL KINNEAR CLARK, Member of the Institution of Civil Engineers; Author of " Railway Machinery,” “Exhibited Machinery

of 1862," &c.


This Book comprises, in one volume of about 1000 pages, the leading rules and data, with numerous tables of constant use in calculations and estimates relating to Practical Mechan. ics:-presented in a reliable, clear, and handy form, with an extent of range and completeness of detail that has not been attempted hitherto in the English language. The Author has endeavored to concentrate the results of the latest investigations of others as well as his own, and to present the best information with perspicuity, conciseness, and scientific accuracy. The volume contains an abundance of formulas of very simple construction, with numerous verbal rules, most of them original, by the aid of which calculations may be effected with certainty and ease. It also comprises above 300 tables, carefully calculated and of manifest usefulness.
