Some more books of interest

I'm just piling up some references. I'm interested in the types of engineering works that existed in the nineteenth century. Some links:

A catalogue: http://books.google.com/books?id=GbQRAAAAIAAJ&pg=PR60&dq=engineering+library+date:1800-1900&lr=&as_brr=1#PPA159,M1
A review of a book: http://books.google.com/books?id=Zcw8ee496JIC&pg=PA331&dq=engineering+library+date:1800-1900&lr=&as_brr=1#PPA331,M1 And the book: http://books.google.com/books?id=m5pEAAAAIAAJ&printsec=frontcover&dq=a+manual+of+road+making
And the catalogue of the state library of Delaware: http://books.google.com/books?id=fPwCAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA82&dq=engineering+library+date:1800-1900&lr=&as_brr=1#PPA18,M1
And a small college catalogue: http://books.google.com/books?id=2j4RAAAAIAAJ&pg=PA91&dq=engineering+library+date:1800-1900&lr=&as_brr=1#PPA88,M1
And this mysterious thing -- "subjects for premiums" of the Institution of Civil Engineers: http://books.google.com/books?id=tBMFAAAAQAAJ&pg=PA409&dq=engineering+library+date:1800-1900&lr=&as_brr=1#PPA407,M1
Or this description of Civil Engineering from an early curriculum: http://books.google.com/books?id=C4kfAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA17&dq=engineering+library+date:1800-1900&lr=&as_brr=1#PPA16,M1
Or this gem about "English for Engineering" from 1930: http://books.google.com/books?id=yaRDAAAAIAAJ&pg=PA392&dq=engineering+library+date:1800-1900&lr=&as_brr=1#PPA391,M1
And one of John Millington's odd little books: http://books.google.com/books?id=yaRDAAAAIAAJ&pg=PA392&dq=engineering+library+date:1800-1900&lr=&as_brr=1#PPA391,M1
Millington was probably involved in some weird legal thing: http://books.google.com/books?id=PZpLAAAAIAAJ&pg=PA346&dq=%22john+millington%22+engineering&lr=&as_brr=1#PPA346,M1
And he seems to have designed a bridge and then gone to South America: http://books.google.com/books?id=Hw8LAAAAIAAJ&pg=PA144&dq=%22john+millington%22+engineering&lr=&as_brr=1; http://books.google.com/books?id=uh81AAAAMAAJ&pg=PA169&dq=%22john+millington%22+engineering&lr=&as_brr=1; http://books.google.com/books?id=jxQFAAAAQAAJ&pg=PA69&dq=%22john+millington%22+engineering&lr=&as_brr=1
