Book was nearly or perhaps virtually perfect as advertised
Reviewed in the United States on September 9, 2018
Excellent quality product, 2500 pages of tables and explanations for machinists. For instance there are ~250 pages on gears. There are 4 ready reference index pages available by opening the front and rear covers. The 22 edition is dated 1984, which suits my purpose working with 50 year-old machinery. I also have a lightly used 1914 original version I bought around 1980 which has served its purpose but the leather binding is failing and I do not want to risk shop use. This is not a beginner’s book unless you are an apprentice. I bought an older book since I have heard current information tends to replace obsolete information. Price was nice too. Unlike the garish jacket, the cover is dark brown leatherette, or maybe leather, with a gold title. Amazon should show the cover in its ads since the jacket would be totalled in weeks of shop use.
