Engineering Facts and Figures

What an odd little book. It seems to have been quite popular in the early days of engineering and perhaps provides a guide for the type of literature that was used in the early days. There are copies available via Google Books.

Another strange thing is "The annual retrospect of engineering and architecture" (1862) by George R. Burnell (Ed.) and published by Lockwood and Co. It is another jumble of engineering facts and practices with a variety of sections. The book reviews are particularly damning.
