Note. We have previously catalogued the first edition as edited by A E Tattersall, (the lectures had been given by him and several other engineers). This second edition clearly states that T S Lascelles prepared it for publication. It is essentially the same work and it is possible that we have wrongly attributed the first edition, but we have not a copy to hand to check.
