Number of pages: 420
The work forms an elementary treatise on demonstrative mechanics. The author has endeavoured to provide a suitable introduction to the study of applied as well as of theoretical Mechanics. Great care has been taken to assume the smallest possible knowledge of pure mathematics, and to furnish the clearest illustration of mechanical principles.

The book presents many practical problems together with brief definitions and solutions of typical problems which should help the student to follow this advice: ''Learn for yourself, think for yourself, make yourself master of principles''.
