Chain Grate Stokers

New York: The Babcock & Wilcox Co., 1914. 63p., high-gloss paperstock throughout with profuse b&w site and machine photography (and several fine diagrammatic images). There were a variety of such engines (these fed coal to boilers on a very large scale), a variety of multiple installations, and a variety of cavernous venues. A nice copy; the 10x7.5 inch cloth boards (cover-titled gilt with aeopile device) are slightly edgeworn, but lie square and flat, there is some trivial flecking to front cover and tiny adhesions to back, endsheets are faintly foxed, entirely clean and sound within, a very good copy.

Amazingly stylish composition of photographs of machines, may be carefully touched up; comparable to the architectural and industrial view-books issued between WWI and WWII in Germany.
