18 LANDELS, J Engineering in the Ancient World
Berkeley, University of California Press 1978 0520034295 / 9780520034297 Hard Cover Very Good in Good dust jacket 
224 pages, diagrams, cloth, dj, very good. From the publisher: We are all aware of the great achievements of the Greeks and Romans in art, culture, philosophy, and regrettably, war, but not so many of us know that they were also considerable engineers. Within the limitations of power available to them they made many remarkable machines, which were not bettered until the Industrial Revolution. .~ In this fascinating study Dr. Landels show how these machines were developed and made. He draws together evidence from archaeological discoveries and from literary sources, and he uses his own experience of engineering to adduce certain arguments from the theory of physics and mechanics.

Twayne Publishers, 1966 Hard Cover 
Illustrated by Chichi Lasley. 258 pages, illustrations, cloth, dj, ex-library with usual library markings otherwise very good. From the dj, 'In John Anderson Miller we find the rare combination of engineer and bard. His tale of sixty centuries of engineering marvels encompasses the full wonder of man's inventiveness, from the building of the mystery cities of the Mayas to the splitting of the atom and today's 'Man in Space' program. The engineering and scientific wonders of the craftsman, the master builder, and the nuclear physicist are seen in an original and dramatic new light which moves from accounts of single structures to sketches of history-making sequences associated with such projects as light-house building, tunnel construction, bridge building and transocean telegraphic communication.'
