English and American Lathes (1900)
Written by Englishman Joseph G. Horner A.M.I.Mech.E, and based on a series of articles he wrote for English Mechanic magazine. 'The reason for its publication was the growing importance of the American lathe trade in England, and the consequent interest with which the distinctive features of the lathes of both countries are regarded'.
Larger format, and with 300 illustrations, very largely engravings, there is a huge amount of interest to anyone interested in the history of the lathe in this book's 184 pages. Paperback.
