This little gem of a book from the mid-19th Century is a treasury of ingenious mechanisms. With over 507 entries, this mini-encyclopedia explains the inner workings of a variety of machines. Spanning pneumatics, hydraulics, presses, steam engines, horologes, and more, 507 Mechanical Movements highlights the small components that make amazingly complex machinery possible.

Each mechanism gets its own entry, including a brief description of the mechanism in question, its applications, and its operation. Clearly drawn diagrams illustrate the mechanism's movements and functions. This edition also contains a thorough index for quick, on-the-job referencing.

Perfect for tinkerers, engineers, or anyone with a mechanical inclination, 507 Mechanical Movements is an informative and inspiring read.
