When I was a student, I was closer in time to this book than I was to our life today -- closer to a vastly different engineering world. Let's look through this window into the past. And it is fortunate that such is the case; for nature rarely combines high mathematical talent, with that practical tact, and observation of outward things, so essential [for an] engineer.
Mathematics is a big part of the book's pages. But here mathematics means tools for calculation -- logarithms, trig functions, tables of interest, square roots, and chords of circles. No tables of integrals -- nothing at all on calculus. For the rest, we read about dams and weirs, beams, water pipes, and route surveying.
