Overview

Press Opinions
"If we turn from such general matters to something more specific, we find the same brief, almost curt, but still effective, treatment . Thus the formulas and figures which the locomotive engineer needs to have at his finger tips are all given clearly, but without any waste of words."
. . . One of the good characteristics of Mr. Low's work is the wide use he has made of valuable authorities. ... In the section on heat there is some clever work in definitions and their elucidation. We cannot devote more space to the consideration of this little volume, and probably we have already said more than enough to show that we rate it very highly." -The Engineer.
"Opinions may differ as to what shape and size may be carried in a pocket with comfort, but we venture to think that opinion will not differ much as to the merits of its contents, for it is without doubt one of the very best and 'up-to-date' pocket-books which have been published." - The Railway Engineer.
"Everything which in the literary way that Mr. Low puts his hand to has finality and reliability. . . . Certainly this pocket-book of tables and rules is no exception to the rule.
"We have nothing but praise for the volume, and mechanical engineers will find in it a boon."-Industries and Iron.
"Although the last few years have seen several additions to an already fairly large number of engineers' pocket-books, it in safe to say that Mr. Low's recent work merits the first place among modem works of this character." -The Mechanical World.
"Any work by Mr. David Allan Low would find ready acceptance among engineers and engineering students, and we have no hesitation in saying that the pocket-book for mechanical engineers is altogether admirable and excellent. . . ." -The Science and Art of Mining.
"Will certainly take a prominent place amongst works of a similar character.... This pocket-book is very freely illustrated, and will be widely appreciated when it becomes known." -English Mechanic.
"This is an altogether admirable work of the most complete kind.
"We have been through the book with great cure . . . and conclude by confidently recommending it to mechanical engineers of every grade in the profession." -Invention.
"The author is to be congratulated ON having produced a pocket-book for mechanical engineers which will be found indispensable, and will, we feel sure, be adopted in every drawing office and workshop as a standard book of reference." -The Steamship.
"It is a mine of valuable information presented in a terse form, easily understood by engineers.
"The book in beautifully printed and the type is astonishingly clear." -Scientific American.
"A lack of space alone prevents us from giving this book the extended notice which it deserves, for it is a complete and reliable work, worthy of a prominent place among the works intended for mechanical engineers." -American Engineer.
