Default New Book on Engine Indicators, Free on the Internet

I posted this on the Stationary Steam and Traction thread, but thought that it might also be of interest to anyone who enjoys large marine internal combustion and steam engines.

My friend John Walter of England is completing his latest book, The Engine Indicator, and has uploaded most of the chapters to allow free access to information as ‘work in progress.’ The book is published by the Canadian Museum of Making of Calgary, Alberta.

If you have any interest in the history of engine indicators, or if you simply enjoy fine historical engineering instruments, you will appreciate this book. The book is easy to read and is generously illustrated. (Some of the photos are of indicators in my collection.) Many of the photos are of extremely rare instruments that you may never see anywhere else.

John has spent years researching the history of these instruments. This book includes information on almost every manufacturer of steam engine indicators from 1796, when they were invented, to the present time. (Engine indicators are still being manufactured by at least one European company.)

The book can be found at:

Click on “More Information” and then select the chapter desired. The Preface is not yet available.
