970 Mechanical Appliances and Novelties of Construction - Gardening
by Gardner D. Hiscox

In this sequel to his enormously successful 1800 Mechanical Movements and Devices, Hiscox adds yet more devices, frequently dealing with them in combination.

Following a layout similar to the earlier book, he starts with methods of power transmission (starting with the lever), works his way through the measurement of power (anemometers, metallic thermometers, springs, etc.) into gearing, motion control devices, clock mechanisms and numerous examples of machines used in manufacturing. He finishes with a survey of the main attempts to invent perpetual motion machines (until about 1900), showing 56 different models. A most interesting book.

6" x 9", Smyth-sewn softcover, 400 pages. Originally published in 1904; reprinted in 2001 as part of our Classic Reprint Series.
