Very nice contribution --- I don't have room to download this but I am going to keep it in my favorites. It is interesting to see how things have changed and more-so to see how some things have not changed in all the passing years.  

Thanks

I actually have a hard-copy of Appleby's Cyclopaedia of Mechanics.  It is in 2 volumes.  Fascinating reading.
