This book is not about the technicalities of Traction Engines but about the work they did. An outline of the development of traction engines is given, followed by chapters dealing with the tasks they performed, the men who manned them and their entanglements with the law and involvements with accidents. There is the name of the previous owner in ink on both the front paste-down and front end-paper, and again on the net two pages including the title page.. The d/w has foxing on its interior surface and is torn at the head of the spine.
