In the production of this book I do not! claim the whole of its contents as being original. I make this acknowledgement, to those whose works I have consulted for information. From Haswell I have received valuable assistance; and with the consent of the Cresent Steel Co., Miller, Metcalf, and Parkin, I am enabled to give a good fundamental theory on steel. The large majority of problems contained in it, are the product oft study during my spare time. It is issued with the hope of making some contribution, however humble, to the true and permanent elevation of my fellow craftesmen. I trust the work in this form may promote this education and that a direct and wide influence for good may be obtained. ...
