Application of Mechanics to Machines; Part II. Heat, Steam, a... nd Steam Engines
After the completion of his own labors, the work appeared somewhat in complete in those directions relating to the application of the steam-engine where recent progress has been very considerable, and the translator has therefore associated with himself Mr. Richard H. Buel, c.e., who has made many additions to the book with especial reference to American practice, and will also take part in the appendix above referred to. Mr. Buel's anno tations are distinguished from the body of the work by being, in every case, in fine print and enclosed in brackets. With reference to these,it is but proper to state, that, having commenced their preparation immediately after completing the revision of a number of articles on mechanical engineering for Appleton's Cyclopaedia of Applied Mechanics (which work is now in course of publication by D. Appleton there is naturally much simi larity between the present notes and some portions of the annotations referred to, both being compiled, in general, from the same sources of information.
