Hardcover. Very Good with no dust jacket. Item #7807
Library label and markings, otherwise light wear. Crisp fold-outs. Solid hardcover. ; "When a group of engineers holds a special gathering, such as this Spring meeting of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers at Pittsburgh, they like to have something in addition to the program of technical sessions and inspection trips. The average engineer first wishes to orient himself in the city and district he is visiting, and then he is keen to know something of the living conditions and the principal industries that support it. Therefore, by arrangement with and courtesy of the Pittsburg Section of the American Institute of Mining and Metallurgical Engineers, which published it for the 134th general meeting in October, 1926, this brochure on Pittsburgh and its work has been revised and re-printed for our visitors." - Foreword.
