Experimental Building Science, vol 1

£24.99

Product description

Experimental Building Science, vol 1 - J Leask Manson
Cambridge University Press, Second edition 1945. Pp253.

Good condition if delicate copy in blue cloth with black lettering on spine. Spine shows bleaching from exposure to sunlight. Binding are nicely tight, the only fraying is at top and tail of spine and there is slight cocking. Some marks on front cover that might be removable with care, and some crayon writing on rear paste down. Front paste down signed by owner.

This lovely book is full of scientific considerations of the physics, chemistry and engineering principles of the construction industry. It is lavishly illustrated with charts and diagrams of the apparatus, measurements and formulae used in building science. Each chapter carries specimen questions from first and second year building science examinations. Very absorbing to all who are inspired by the history of science, before the computer age made it all irrelevant.

Oxfam Bookshop Market Harborough

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller. Oxfam bookshops offer a wider selection of books than most shops, from modern fiction and leisure interest to more specialist subjects, classics, and rare or collectable books. We also stock an attractive range of greetings cards and a good selection of stationery. Come and browse!

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
