The rapid advance in the industry appertaining to mechanical appliances for locomotion on common roads seems to need a better representation than it has yet had in book form, especially in its relation to the automobile industry in the United States. It is hoped that the numerous inquiries in relation to motors and vehicles that have been received by the author will find a fair and satisfactory reply in the pages of this work. Then there need be no apology for the publication of a work to meet the wants of seekers fb information in this new line of industry which exemplifies a new phase in the ways and means of a people for gratifying their desires for new modes and economies in travel for pleasure or business. In the development of new modes of power resources and in the improvement of well-known powers for automobile uses, is involved a vast business aspect and comparatively a new departure in business lines. There has been as yet but little published in book form that has proved satisfactory to the general reader or inquirer on the subject of the mechanism and motive power for common road locomotion. The technical press in the United States seems to have been the only source of information and illustration in regard to this newly developed industry, and to this the author is much indebted for details and illustrations.
