"Mr. Clark manifests what is an innate perception of what is likely to be useful in a pocket. book, and he is really unrivalled in the art of condensation. It is very difficult to hit upon any mechanical engineering subject concerning which this work supplies no information, and the excellent index at the end adds to its utility. In one word, it is an exceedingly handy and efficient tool, possessed of which the engineer will be saved many a wearisome calculation, or yet more wearisome hunt through various text-books and treatises, and, as such, we can heartily recommend it to our readers." - The Engineer.

"It would be found difficult to compress more matter within a similar compass, or produce a book of 650 pages which should be more compact or convenient for pocket reference. i . . Will be appreciated by mechanical engineers of all classes."-Practical Engineer L.

MR. HUTTON'S PRACTICAL HANDBOOKS.

THE WORKS' MANAGER'S HANDBOOK.

Comprising Modern Rules, Tables, and Data. For Engineers, Millwrights, and Boiler Makers ; Tool Makers, Machinists, and Metal Workers; Iron and Brass Founders, &c. By W. S. HUTTON, Civil and Mechanical Engineer, Author of "The Practical Engineer's Handbook." Sixth Edition, carefully Revised, with Additions. In One handsome Volume, medium 8vo, strongly bound.

[Just Published. 1510 The Author having compiled Rules and Data for his own use in a great variety of modern engineering work, and having found his notes extremely useful, decided to publish them-revised to date-believing that a practical work, suited to the daily REQUIREMENTS OF MODERN ENGINEERS, would be favourably received.

"Of this edition we may repeat the appreciative remarks we made upon the first and third. Since the appearance of the latter very considerable modifications have been made, although the total numher of pages remains almost the same. It is a very useful collection of rules, tables, and workshop and drawing office data."– The Engineer, May 10, 1895.

"The author treats every subject from the point of view of one who has collected workshop notes for application in workshop practice, rather than from the theoretical or literary aspect. The volume contains a great deal of that kind of information which is gained only by practical

experience, and is seldom written in books." - The Engineer, June 5. 1885.

" The volume is an exceedingly useful one, brimful with engineer's notes, memoranda, and rules, and well worthy of being on every mechanical engineer's bookshelf."- Mechanical World, "The information is precisely that likely to be required in practice

... The work forms a desirable addition to the library not only of the works' manager, but of any one connected with general engineering."-Mining Journal.

" Brimful of useful information, stated in a concise form, Mr. Hutton's books have met a pressing want among engineers. The book must prove extremely useful to every practical man possessing a copy."-Practical Engineer.

THE PRACTICAL ENGINEER'S HANDBOOK.

Comprising a Treatise on Modern Engines and Boilers, Marine, Locomotive, and Stationary. And containing a large collection of Rules and Practical Data relating to Recent Practice in Designing and Constructing all kinds of Engines, Boilers, and other Engineering work. The whole constituting a com. prehensive Key to the Board of Trade and other Examinations for Certificates of Competency in Modern Mechanical Engineering. By WALTER S. HUTTON, Civil and Mechanical Engineer, Author of "The Works' Manager's Handbook for Engineers," &c. With upwards of 370 Illustrations.

Fifth Edition, Revised with Additions. Medium 8vo, nearly 500 pp., strongly bound.

[Just Published. 18/0 This work is designed as a companion Author's “WORKS' Manager's HANDBOOK." It possesses many new and features, and con. tains, like its predecessor, a quantity of matter not originally ntended for publication, but collected by the Author for his own use in the c nstruc on of a great variety of MODERN ENGINEERING WORK.

The information is given in a condensed and concise form, and is illustrated by upwards of 370 Woodcuts; and comprises a quantity of tabulated matter of great value to all engaged in designing, constructing, or estimating for ENGINES, BOILERS, and OTHER ENGINEERING WORK.

"We have kept it at hand for several weeks, referring to it as occasion arose, and we have not on a single occasion consulted its pages without finding the information of we were in quest." -Athenaum.

" A thoroughly good practical handbook, which no engineer can go through without learning something that will be of service to him."- Marine Engineer.

" An excellent book of reference for engineers, and a valuable text-book for students of engineering."-Scotsman.

" This valuable manual embodies the results and experience of the leading authorities on mechanical engineering."-Building News.

"The author has collected together a surprising quantity of rules and practical data, and has shown much judgment in the selections he has made,

There is no doubt that this book is one of the most useful of its kind published, and will be a very popular compendium."--Engineet:

"A mass of information set down in simple language, and in such a form that it can be easily referred to at any time. The matter is uniformly good and well chosen, and is greatly elucidated by the illustrations. The book will find its way on to most engineers' shelves, where it will rank as one of the most useful books of reference."-Practical Engineer

"Full of useful information, and should be found on the office shelf of all practical engineers, -English Mechanic.

MR. HUTTON'S PRACTICAL HANDBOOKS-continued.

STEAM BOILER CONSTRUCTION.

A Practical Handbook for Engineers, Boiler-Makers, and Steam Users. Containing a large Collection of Rules and Data relating to Recent Practice in the Design, Construction, and Working of all kinds of Stationary, Locomotive, and Marine Steam-Boilers. By WALTER S. HUTTON, Civil and Mechanical Engineer, Author of "The Works' Manager's Handbook," "The Practical Engineer's Handbook," &c. With upwards of 500 Illustrations. Third Edition, Revised and much Enlarged, medium 8vo, cloth . . 18/0

This WORK is issued in continuation of the Series of Handbooks written by the Author, viz. :-“The WorkS' MANAGER'S HANDBOOK " and "THE PRACTICAL ENGINEER'S HANDBOOK," which are so highly appreciated by engineers for the practical nature of their information; and is consequently written in the same style as those works.

The Author believes that the concentration, in a convenient form for easy reference, of such a large amount of thoroughly practical information on SteamBoilers, will be of considerable service to those for whom it is intended, and he trusts the book may be deemed worthy of as favourable a reception as has been accorded to its predecessors.

“One of the best, if not the best, books on boilers that has ever been published. The infor. mation is of the right kind, in a simple and accessible form. So far as generation is concerned, this is, undoubtedly, the standard book on steam practice."--Electrical Review.

** Every detail, both in boiler design and management, is clearly laid before the reader. The volume shows that boiler construction has been reduced to the condition of one of the most exact sciences; and such a book is of the utmost value to the fin de siècle Engineer and Works Manager.' - Marine Engineer.

" There has long been room for a modern handbook on steam boilers; there is not that room now, because Mr. Hutton has filled it. It is a thoroughly practical book for those who are occupied in the construction, design, selection, or use of boilers."-Engineer.

“The book is of so important and comprehensive a character that it must find its way into the libraries of every one interested in boiler using or boiler manufacture if they wish to be thoroughly inforned. We strongly recommend the book for the intrinsic value of its contents."- Machinery Market.

PRACTICAL MECHANICS' WORKSHOP COMPANION.

HUTTON, C.E., Author of “ The Works' Manager's Handbook," "The Practical Engineer's Handbook," &c. Fcap. 8vo, nearly 500 pp., with 8 Plates and upwards of 250 Illustrative Diagrams, strongly bound for workshop or pocket wear and tear. 6/0

* In its modernised form Hutton's 'Templeton' should have a wide sale, for it contains much valuable information which the mechanic will often find of use, and not a few tables and notes which he might look for in vain in other works. This modernised edition will be appreciated by all who have learned to value the original editions of Templeton.'"-English Mechanic,

" It has met with great success in the engineering workshop, as we can testify; and there are a great many men who, in a great measure, owe their rise in life to this little book."-Building News.

"This familiar text-book-well known to all mechanics and engineers-is of essential service to the every-day requirements of engineers, millwrights, and the various trades connected with engineering and building. The new modernised edition is worth its weight in gold."Building News. (Second Notice.)

"This well-known and largely used book contains information, brought up to date, of the sort so useful to the foreman and draughtsman. So much fresh information has been introduced as to constitute it practically a new book. It will be largely used in the office and workshop."Mechanical World.

"The publishers wisely entrusted the task of revision of this popular, valuable, and usefu book to Mr. Hutton, than whom a more competent man they could not have found."- Iron.
