In presenting this book to the engineers, firemen, and steam-users of this country, the writer indulges the hope that it will be found a valuable guide and assistant in their daily labors. To the engineers and firemen it will prove a book pf ready reference; and it will also enable those who own or use steam power to exercise an intelligent supervision over their steam machinery, and those whom they employ to manage it. The writers principal object in getting up this book is to give such information as seems best calculated to raise the status of the engineers (the men who run steam engines), and to try to induce them to pursue their inquiries in other works on the subject, written by abler pens. It is a well-known fact that the great majority of those who imn steam engines are men of rather limited education the three Rs representing about their sum-total in that respect and hence a book to be of any practiced value to them must of necessity be written in language which they can understand and not in symbols beyond their comprehension.(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.Forgotten Books' Classic Reprint Series utilizes the latest technology to regenerate facsimiles of historically important writings.
