“This interesting collection from the History & Heritage Committee of the American Society of Mechanical Engineering (ASME) … is a guide to more than 130 mechanical relics scattered around the country [and a few international], standing resolutely...as monuments to the aspirations and achievements of mechanical engineers…. The latest entry is the Saturn V rocket (1967); the earliest, Newcomen's steam engine (1712).
Recommended for libraries in search of a single volume enshrining the great works of the mechanical engineering profession.”
