About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for THE SLIDE-VALVE PRACTICALLY EXPLAINED: Embracing simple and complete practical demonstrations of the operation of each element in a slide-valve movement, and illustrating the effects of variations in their proportions, by examples carefully selected from the most recent and successful practice. by Rose, Joshua..

Description:

Hardcover first edition - First edition. Uncommon first edition of this slim book devoted (according to the author's preface) to presenting "to practical men a clear explanation of the operations of a slide-valve under the conditions in which it is found in actual practice" - and useful even to those "who begin it in entire ignorance of the subject matter." The slide-valve is, of course, an essential component of steam engines, which were so important in fueling the industrial revolution. Illustrated with 35 engravings. Book measures 7 1/8 by 5 inches wide, Index. 100 pp. plus a 22 page "Catalogue of Practical and Scientific Books Published by Henry Carey Baird & Co." plus 2 pp of "Recent Additions to Our List." This title is not included in the catalogue listing, although Rose's earlier book "The Practical Mechanist" is on the 'recent additions.' Although it had at least three printings, it remains uncommon in all printings, but especially so in the first edition. Very good in dark brown cloth-covered boards, with gilt lettering on the spine and front cover (minor fraying to cloth at corners, fading along edge of front cover.). Bookseller Inventory #
