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.

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.

It seems necessary in the sale of oriental rugs to create an atmosphere which resembles the eastern setting of the rugs, and this of course means very dim lighting. The idea seems to prevail also that the same thing is true in regard to lighting for all rugs. I believe, however, that this is largely a fallacy. In the more modern homes of to-day the rugs are seen in a good light and there is just as much reason for good lighting for the display of such goods as for any other line of merchandise. In regard to furniture departments, polished surfaces are presented on every hand and unless a highly diffused lighting system is used the attempt to cut down the glare results in the use of low candlepower lamps. The absorption of light is very great in such departments also as in the case of rug departments, thus often giving the general impression of being lighted to a much lower intensity than other departments of the store. The power of example is strong, and if any store with a reasonably good standing has departments lighted in this manner other stores in carrying out their lighting schemes are impressed with the general effect and follow this example in their own cases. There is no question, however, that by the use of a well diffused lighting system increased illumination at least to a par with that of other departments will be justified by resulting sales. Human nature does not differ materially when purchasing furniture or rugs to what it does when purchasing any other kind of merchandise.

Item Description: Rarebooksclub.com, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 246 x 189 mm. 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. 1919 Excerpt: .type and 4,791 special inspections. This gives you some idea as to the character of work and the quantity of work that the Department of Labor, now the Industrial Commission, has done. Total orders issued up to March 1st, 3,290 and compliances secured, 1,569, that is, about twice the number of orders issued as compliances secured, giving about 1,500 or 1,600 compliances still to be secured. I have not had time to segregate these orders to determine whether they were for glare or for improper distribution, etc. From what I can remember, most of them were for the elimination of glare or minimizing of glare. Many other orders have since been secured, no doubt, but I have only given statistics up to the 1st of March. These orders go out, and the parties upon whom they are served are given a definite time in which to comply with the law. Manufacturers may ask for an extension of time. In that case the order still is pending. In the case of all orders that are pending, compliance will be insisted upon, and if the ordinary method does not secure it the Court will be resorted to. We have a capable legal bureau and these things are threshed out in Court if necessary. W. P. Hurley: It seems to me that if the codes in themselves are in advance of the popular education, it is the work of the promotion of these codes that needs to be taken in hand, in order to, make them of the greatest efficiency. We may get ourselves into the position of the states of Wisconsin and Massachusetts, with their insurance laws, where they passed useful and effective laws, providing for state insurance, but they fell flat because the popular education was not sufficiently advanced on the subject for the people to make use of them. One of the most interesting points, that has not been touche. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781130204810

Item Description: The Johns Hopkins Press, Baltimore, Maryland, 1911. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. First Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. [4], [525]-1052 pages. Volume 2 ONLY. Green cloth. 8vo. Gilt titling still bright on spine, minor wear elsewhere, especially at the corners. Clean and bright internally, a great working copy. Many lectures by various professors covering a multitude of practical topics. Starting with basic theory of the eye, moving to physiological and psychological aspects of illuminating, to engineering considerations and calculating, to principles of design for interior and exterior illumination, a useful historical text for what was worthwhile knowing at the time. It is useful to note that in 1911 there were still many places without any kind of electrical illumination - there is significant attention paid also to gas street lighting, shades reflectors and diffusing media, and commercial lighting as well. Volume 1 (NOT PRESENT HERE) notes that this special course was set up to teach 240 students the specialized knowledge needed to grow the number of trained individuals in the field. Volume 1 dealt with the physics and chemistry of light. Bookseller Inventory # JK1320950
