Excerpt from Notes on Docks and Dock Construction

This work does not pretend to be an exhaustive treatise on Docks; it is, in fact, as its title indicates, a collection of notes bearing upon a subject of very great interest, and embracing a very wide field of practice.

Some of these notes are based upon the Author's own observation and experience, extending over a considerable number of years, while others have been compiled from information very kindly communicated, and from the recorded experience of many of the most prominent men in the profession, who have made this branch of engineering their especial study.

The notes were commenced with a very different object in view. At the suggestion, however, of the Author of "Notes on Building Construction," they have been amplified with the hope of affording useful information to those interested in the subject, and to indicate through the references where further and fuller particulars may be found.

The subject has not been dealt with from all points of view.
