Elements of Theoretical Mechanics
by Alexander Ziwet
Publisher: The Macmillan Company 1904
Number of pages: 517
The book may serve to stimulate the study of theoretical mechanics in engineering schools. It is intended to furnish a safe and sufficient basis, on the one hand for the more advanced study of the science, on the other for the study of its more simple applications.

The work forms an elementary treatise on demonstrative mechanics. The author provides an introduction to the study of applied as well as of theoretical Mechanics. Great care was taken to assume the smallest possible knowledge of pure mathematics.

This is an introduction to Classical Mechanics, which many students may find useful as a supplementary resource. Cohen emphasizes basic concepts, such as force and permissible frames of reference, which frequently are dealt with hastily.
by Oliver Clarence Lester - Ginn and company
The matter presented is intended to form the introduction to a work on Theoretical Mechanics. The book is intended as a drill book, and the unusual elaboration of the topics, should enable the student to overcome most of his difficulties himself.
