Review quote

This book provides an ideal and concise summary of the literature and is highly recommended.
A significant work...This is a most interesting book and contains much material which so far has only appeared in journals. If forms a valuable supplement to the many books now available on general mechanical principles....The production is excellent and the book can thoroughly be recommended.
