This early work on pump engineering by Paul N. Hasluck is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. It details the mechanics of suction pumps, hydraulic rams, plunger pumps, valves and much more. This is a fascinating read for anyone interested in pump theory and engineering. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
