It's not common to find an example of this early technical magazine and especially not in such nice condition. There is a small bit of soiling to outer edge of front cover, but it is otherwise very handsome. Oversized at 11" across by 14" tall. Numerous ads at front and back with bold graphics showing various pumps, pipes, derricks, engineering and surveying equipment, fire hydrants, valves. etc.. Even submarine tunnels and early steam shovels. A sampling of articles include the following topics: a landslide on the New York, Central & Hudson Railroad, the foundation for the 1000-ft. Eiffel tower in Paris, and the proposed Long Island Bridge. Technical drawings throughout. Magazine begins pagination where the previous issue left off, but we counted 15 pages of dense text, plus 25 pages of ads.
