Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Romance of Engineering: Stories of the Highway, the Waterway, the Railway, and the Subway It was inevitable that the writer of this volume, while passing over some old ground, in his search for the Sources of Information, should have occasionally struck into the channels formed by his predecessors, while projecting a line of his own. But the Author can conscientiously declare that he has at all times penetrated to the fountain-head for his facts, and has not tapped the reservoirs of others on his way. In any instances in which the opinions or views of writers are quoted, due acknowledgment is made in the text or by notes. This volume, as its title indicates, is a Romance of Engineering; a consideration of the non-technical and anecdotal aspect of road-making, railway-making, and other early Engineering Works. It is not intended, primarily, for students, but for the large classes of youthful and middle-aged readers who desire to know something of the means in the past which have tended to secure the civilization of the present. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Find more at This book is a reproduction of an important historical work. Forgotten Books uses state-of-the-art technology to digitally reconstruct the work, preserving the original format whilst repairing imperfections present in the aged copy. In rare cases, an imperfection in the original, such as a blemish or missing page, may be replicated in our edition. We do, however, repair the vast majority of imperfections successfully; any imperfections that remain are intentionally left to preserve the state of such historical works.
