THE PRACTICAL MOTORIST’S ENCYCLOPEDIA
WRITTEN BY F.J. CAMM
PRINCIPLES, UPKEEP AND REPAIR OF EVERY PART OF THE CAR
The publication of No. I of the “Practical Motorist” seemed an up-to-date volume on the motor car, dealing with all of the very latest developments, which have contributed to the present state of high efficiency in automobile design. The outcome of that thought is this present volume – The Practical Motorist’s Encyclopædia – which it is considered provides the motorist with a ready means of tracking troubles which may develop in the running of his car, a handy guide to upkeep, overhaul and repair, and, in fact, with a general consultant on motor car practice.
The contents are alphabetical arranged, and include definitions of most of the more important terms used in connection with a motor car. Additionally, important items have been expanded to include practical instruction and diagrams, and in this form the work will be found of value to the mechanic as well as to the owner driver.
I have also included at the back of the book useful tables dealing with screw-threads, metric equivalents and other workshop data.
The book has been used, but it is in good condition, hard cover, 392 pages, English text.
