Over 1,800 detailed illustrations-including diagrams and cross-sections-accompany each entry, further illuminating the mechanical workings of a diverse range of devices and appliances. The clear and concise entries are organized by type, including sections on mechanical power, steam power, motive power, hydraulic power, electrical power, and air power, as well as chapters devoted to timekeeping and navigational devices; mining, milling, and construction devices; and a final chapter on miscellaneous devices that defy classification.

Offering quick, clear, and satisfying explanations of the applications and inner-workings of 1,800 mechanical devices, this book is one-of-a-kind
