Wells on Engineering Design


THIS book is intended for the use of engineering students in schools and colleges, and as a text-book for examinations in which a knowledge of practical geometry and machine drawing is required. The author says in the preface that the chief reason which has led to its preparation is that during the time he was engaged in teaching on the engineering side of Dulwich College, he found it impossible to obtain a suitable text-book.

Engineering Drawing and Design.

By Sydney H. Wells In Two Parts. (London: Chas. Griffin and Co., Ltd., 1893.)
