The Practical Dictionary of Mechanics in 8 Volumes / Edward H. Knight

£350.00

Product description

These books are in very good condition for their age and are profusely illustrated with upwards of 10, 000 engravings. Bound in brown cloth, with gilt titles (which are still bright) on the fronts and spines, they are all solidly bound. There is some wear to the tops and bottoms of the spines (see photos), particularly on volumes 1 and 5, which both lack a little cloth at the bottoms of the spines. There is some foxing on a few pages, but almost all the pages are in very good condition and very clear. Altogether this is a sound and desirable set.

Subtitle: Being a Description of Tools, Instruments, Machines, Processes and Engineering; History of Inventions; General Technological Vocabulary and Digest of Mechanical Appliances in Science and the Arts.

The Beeston books and music shop is situated near to Nottingham University, close to the city of Nottingham. There is a train station nearby. We offer a wider selection of books than most shops, from modern fiction and leisure interest to more specialist subjects, academic books, and rare or collectable items. There is a wide variety of music, including sheet music and a good selection of high quality classical, rock and pop vinyl. The volunteer team is a diverse mix from the local community, and University. We are currently recruiting for a quality control volunteer. We always welcome good quality, saleable donations which can be delivered to our rear entrance.
