Default Vintage Engine Machining Book

Are there any good vintage books on engine engineering, design and rebuilding?
I'd like to know what tolerances, lubrication, materials and methods they used back in the 10s and 20s.

Also "Dyke's Encyclopedia", and another I think was called Automobile Catechism or similar.
