The Illuminating Engineering Society is not responsible for the ltatvmfllu vanced by contributors. elements together; the physicist, the physiologist, the psychologist, the electrical engineer, the gas engineer, the architect, the fixture designer, the manufacturer, the school superintendent, etc. Not only have all of these been represented in the membership of the Society and its committees, but in the management as well, ---a plan which has yielded results that would have been impossible without such co-operation. The subject of lighting was discussed from all points of view, ----hygienic, economic, esthetic--in technical papers presented by individuals, committee reports and discussions at meetings; thus giving to the world a comprehensive treatment of the science and art from every standpoint, so that in ten years we have gathered in the printed TRANSACTIONS of the Society, volumes aggregating 8,000 pages, constituting the most complete reference library on illumination to be found anywhere. Before the Society was organized, lighting was largely a matter of guessing. Now it is a matter of science, and the rule of thumb that existed before has given way to definite calculations which may be depended upon to ensure the same lighting result in all cases under stated conditions. This does not mean that the Society has been interested only in the scientific side of th6 question. On the contrary it has laid great stress on the esthetic side and has recognized the general principle that science and art should go hand in. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781230053325

Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1918 Excerpt: .in this attempt to prove Mr. Jefferson s grasp of the important subject of daylight illumination. A few statements are found indicating the size and number of window panes, but the most complete statement discovered, in Mr. Jefferson s own handwriting on the back of a drawing for one of the hotels at the University, reads as follows: In this drawing the room adjacent to the dormitory is very poorly lighted and aired, having other rooms on 3. sides, it could receive air and light on one side only, and that by a single window opening into the arcade, to remedy this, place a window over the point (a) between the top of the terras and the top of the external entablature in flank, intermitting the entablature at that place, make the window semicircular and return the entablature on itself on each side so as to embrace the window on each side, and all but in contact with it. instead of a full architrave let it shew a 2. I. ogee only on it s rim, to leave more space for light; let the window sill range with the bottom of the entablature, and the top of the ogee with the top of the entablature; which being (say) 35. I. high, after deducting 5. I. for the sill and ogee, leaves 30. I. for the radius of the semicircular sash, this window should open on pivots placed horizontally (as the upper windows in the Monticello house) to be managed by a cord, or (being but 8. f.--8.1, from the floor) may be opened and shut by hand, mounting into a chair. This extract gives a clear idea of the minuteness with which Mr. Jefferson treated the detail in his designs, and can well be accepted as indicative of a similar care and circumspection in regard to the lighting and ventilating arrangements of all his struc tures. It seems undoubtedly correct to as. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781130098846
