The construction of cranes and other lifting machinery

Preface to the Third Edition
This edition contains in Part I. the matter which constituted the original edition, and in Parts I. and II. the work as it appeared in the second edition.

The slight revision found necessary has been in form rather than in substance.

The new matter, Part III., comprises numerous examples, setting forth the present practice of some of the best-known makers of lifting machinery. Many of such examples serve to illustrate the extensive and extending application of electrical energy to the operation of cranes and lifting machines of all types.
