1800 Mechanical Movements, Devices and Appliances

When I posted 507 Mechanical Movements, I'd mentioned there would be more to come. I finally got around to scanning this 416 page book originally published in 1899, with this expanded edition originally published in 1921. It's contents fall firmly in the public domain, and as with 507 Movements, the front and back covers are composed entirely of images from within the book itself. No notices of copyright exist within the book, and the only new work in or on it appears to be a three paragraph description of it's contents on the rear cover - so I am placing it in it's entirety in this file.

This book covers a far more diverse set of mechanical devices than 507 - from gears and linear motion mechanisms to sails, steam engines, concrete mixers and mining devices.

This is a 302.9Mb DjVu file scanned at 400 dpi. I am working to get seeders up as quickly as possible for the torrent, as well as regular http hosting for any of us that are bittorrent-challenged.

Here it is: 1800 Mechanical Movements, Devices and Appliances

Edit: A regular http download is available now, courtesy of Includipedia here: 1800 Mechanical Movements, Devices and Appliances (wiki page)

Thanks a huge bunch for the book and for PDF version especially.
