    Default Collector's Items: Books on Machine Tools

    Hello, forum. After researching the site, it is my understanding that this forum has no official list containing the names of antique collector's books for machinists. In true machinist fashion I've decided to produce the list myself, if the moderator permits. Please feel free to list your antique book in this thread, and I will list it here in this top post so that others who search for it will be able to quickly find this information via the web, and more specifically, via PM.com. Please list any series of books, antique, vintage or classic, including any that had no successor. Preferably list a respected title to be valued by collectors. Thank you.
    P.S. Revision suggestions are appreciated; as are discussions about what is considered rare, vintage or classic, and the value of the books to a collector. Please share photos of your collectors literature here (when replying, do not post a previously posted image).

    List:
    1. Oberg, Erik and Franklin D. Jones. Machinery's Handbook. New York: The Industrial Press, 1914. Print.

    Metalworking by Paul Hasluck, while not specifically a machinists book it's a wonderful reference even today and offers much insight in to the ways of old, I highly recomend to anyone that works with metal that they seek a copy, reprints availible or from Lindsay publishing, it can also be found in digital form, though it seems google's copy is broken.

    This is a good topic, moderators please sticky.

    Well, a very good book. Exists in three different revisions with the last (1915) Smith's best (Smith died in 1916 and the book was published by Boston Industrial Press for many years after his passing.)

    I have always been fond of Joshua Rose's Modern Machine Shop Practice. Published originally in 1879 by C. Scribner Sons, it was updated/revised at least three times until 1916. Usually found as two volumes, Rose also sent out folios as a sort of measured "self study course" which he sold to a lesser extent than the book. The books can be bought as cheaply as $20 in poor cover condition (the contents usually survive pretty well) but a fully covered/leather bound good condition example in two volumes can set you back up to $400.

    Another one the historical me appreciates is the 1880 Census Report on "Power and Manufactures". Your government at work with "mission creep" going at full speed ahead. It's not a "how to do it book" but a delightful description of the machinery and methods with EXCELLENT woodcuts of post Civil War Machinery. Usually seen today in the original volumes in dusty 19th century Carnegie Libraries, it was reprinted in the 1980s by Lindsay Publications both as a full volume and as a soft cover abbreviated "machine tools" version.

    Actually, I think we already have as a sticky thread a list of ONLINE sources for many or most of these books. But not to say that a written list should not be here for those looking to update their personal library.

    I liked the "online" reference we did before because it gave us access to books which otherwise we likely would never see. The Census 1880 book might be one of these except for Lindsay Publications who had the foresight to see something of interest, and market a book according to that thought and readership.

    But there are a lot of technical books which CAN'T be gotten anywhere but online.

    One of my faves is Uhland's "Corliss Engines and Allied Steam Motors" available at https://archive.org/stream/corlissen...ge/n8/mode/2up among other places.

    Described in this book is the step by step developmental progression of the Corliss steam engine since it's invention until about 1876, and information that I have not seen anywhere else.

    The book is available in it's entirety online. Net publishers (those entreprenaural companies who publish books based on "in the public domain online scan" - and otherwise making money on somebody else's hard work) have not seen fit yet to publish the entire book, or even give it a good effort. The original book was one of the "oversize" books usually meriting a special reference shelf, and the reprints are the standard 8.5 x 11 sheets commonly used for this work. The original also contains specially prepared and printed on better paper fold-out "plates" which the online source created re-prints don't usually include.

    But this a book that if it were available to be bought original could probably not be had for less than $400, and I have NEVER seen one come for sale on the Internet.

    I do think we should make our lists though. It is amazing how much information of the past age has been lost, simply because of non-use.

    And Santayana said it exactly right.

    "Those who forget the past are doomed by fate to repeat their mistakes."

    My wife is in the midst of getting a masters in information and library sciences, and she was just recommending this web site to me: https://www.librarything.com/
    I realize that pulls the list off of PM itself, but that site has great tools for making and searching "personal" libraries, and y'all can share your lists with each other.
    Basically if you put in an ISBN it tries to find all the existing details on the book for you.
    A whole lot less typing thats for sure.
    Just in case some of you find it useful I started a PM group there: https://www.librarything.com/groups/practicalmachinist
    Now I just have to enter my (few) books.

    The Colvin/Stanley/McGraw-Hill books mentioned above are otherwise known as the "Machine Shop Library" and were big sellers back in the day.



    The books are red with gilt lettering like below...



    I think I have the complete set. Bought for like $3 at a yard sale for ALL the books - back in my day.

    Lists with personal recommendation organized by major subject area and by author would be great. What's going on in this thread,......not so much.

    My contribution to this mess, Fed Colvin books, online links.

    Have not tested all links. YMMV
