Rivers and Estuaries or Streams and Tides

£32.00

Product description


shelf wear, slight rubbing, scuffing, small tear on cover, ex-library with stamps and stickers, slight yellowing with foxing, spine coming away a little at front and back pages, otherwise good condition


from preface:
'The Elementary Study which is contained in the ensuing pages, is to a large extent based upon Lectures on the subject of "Rivers and Estuaries," which were delivered in the beginning of 1911 at the desire of the Council of the Institution of Civil Engineers, and under the Vernon-Harcourt bequest, to the Students of the Institution in various parts of Great Britain; and upon further Lectures on the subject of "Streams and Tides," delivered in the University of Manchester to the Students in the Department of Engineering there, which is under the capable direction of Professor Petavel, F. R. S.

The object of the Lectures, which was kept in view during their delivery, was to furnish to these young Students information, and to offer to them counsel, which experience had taught the lecturer would have been of lifelong service to him had he heard and learned the same things in the remote period when he too was young.

To youth pertains the inheritance of the ages, but to youth also pertains a portentous faculty of forgetting; for which reasons amongst others, this Study is issued and is respectfully dedicated to the Engineering Students of the present day.'
