Second Series, which, in addition to the acknowledged excellence of the First Series, has this advantage-instead of lithography, the finest engravings on steel have been adopted, at a large outlay; the publisher trusting to the extensive patronage of the profession to repay him this additional expense. The following detailed list will show the important matter contained in this Volume, and its superiority over some similar works, which have been got up without an editor, from the combined feeling of miserly economy and presumptuous ignorance.

The present volume concludes at that part of the History of the invention of the Steam Engine, when it had been brought to that degree of perfection, in which all its principles of action were fully developed and realized in practice. The remainder of the subject will consist of technical descriptions of structure of such steam engines as are now in use; this, with their applications to various purposes, will form the subject of another volume, considerable preparations for which have been made, and for which most of the plates have already been engraved by the late Wilson Lowry.

"It is a work," says Dr. Birkbeck, in a letter to the Editor, 18th March, 1837, "which will accomplish a great desideratum in practical science; for although there occurs much mathematical inves tigation, there is nothing which ought not to be easily understood and thoroughly known, by every individual who attempts any practical pursuit connected with the subjects which you have handled. Indeed I consider this publication an admirable text-book for engineers of every description; and also peculiarly adapted for the libraries and lecture-rooms of mechanics' institutions."
