quite possibly the world’s coolest book

How can you NOT buy this book?!?!?

Five Hundred and Seven Mechanical Movements, by Henry T. Brown.

Originally published in 1868, its title page states that it includes “many movements never before published” AND “several which have only recently come into use”.

Finally, a gift for the geek who has everything.


One thought on “quite possibly the world’s coolest book

  1. cool, but be careful. books like this tend to multiply.

    I once bought a 940 “Bluejacket Manual”, published by the Navy for the new recruit. Somehow that turned into a 1941 edition of McNight’s Seamanship Handbook.

    Then I found a 1918 edition of “The Engineer’s Handbook”. A must have for those building stuff, like buildings and bridges. That too seemed to multiply and now I now have a 1934 “Shop Foreman’s Handbook” for making the metal and iron parts that the Engineers use!
