"In putting this work before the public, the author has endeavored to supply a clear and brief description of the materials, processes, and apparatus made use of in the various examples of industry and skill constantly before our eyes ... The illustrations of this work have been drawn ... from reality. By the kind permission of Lord Panmure, the artists were allowed to make whatever drawings were necessary in the arsenal at Woolwich; and thanks are due to many of our eminent manufacturers for similar favours with respect to their several factories and machinery."--Preface, p.
