PREFACE.

THE large measure of success attained by the author's "Hand-book for Steam Users" has induced him to write the following pages on similar lines. The literature likely to be of service to pump users hitherto published has been extremely scanty, and it is hoped, therefore, that the notes to be found herein may prove acceptable and useful. Within the scope of the work it has been impossible to notice all the varied pump combinations, and some of the remarks made must be considered general and not exhaustive.

Some notes on design will be found interspersed with the text, but the author wishes it to be understood that the book is not intended as a treatise on the construction of pumps.

The matter has been condensed as much as possible, and is arranged in the form of headed paragraphs for easy reference.
