About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1914, as part of the Cambridge Technical Series, this book was written to provide a guide to the 'systematic cultivation of high class mechanical line making, and its application as a necessary adjunct to mechanical work production by those methods and expressions which are used and understood in the drawing offices and works of Engineering firms'. The first part of the text is comprised of a progressive course on aspects of mechanical drawing; the second part contains exercises on object drawing and working drawings. Illustrative figures are incorporated throughout. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in mechanical drawing and engineering.
