Excerpt from Radford's Cyclopedia of Construction, Vol. 5 of 12: Carpentry, Building and Architecture
The keynote of the Cyclopedia is found in the emphasis constantly laid on the practical as distinguished from the theoretical form Of treatment, in its total avoidance of the... complicated formulas of higher mathematics, and in its redue tion of all technical subjects to terms Of the simplest and clearest English. Throughout the pages devoted to Steel Construction, for example, the mathematics of the subject have been eliminated to such an extent that the reader will not find a single instance where even a square root sign has been used.
