The Model Engineer and Amateur Electrician Vol VIII Jan-June 1903

£29.99

Product description

This is a bound volume of the January to June 1903 editions of the magazine, which was advertised as A Journal of Mechanics and Electricity for Amateurs and Students. Of considerable interest in itself, the volume also includes correspondence between the owner of the book (J E Clark) and Mrs. Doreen M. J. Edgington, presumably the wife of David W. Edgington who wrote in "The Stationary Engine" about the identification of a particular model as requested by Mr. Clark, a copy of the subsequent article about this in the magazine, articles from another journal and what appears to be a record of an evening class or similar attended by the same J E Clark.
The volume is cloth bound in grey- green, which is stained and rubbed with some fraying on the spine, the sign of a well-read engineering book. The owner's name is written in ink on the front fixed end paper, together with a small stamp "26 OCT 1941"; although the speckled text block edges are somewhat toned and interior pages are a little discoloured, all text, b/w diagrams and photographs are clear.
The images show the front cover of the book and a sample of the personal items mentioned.
