AUTOMOBILES AND MOTORCYCLES

The Modern Gasoline Automobile-Its Design, Construction, and Opera

tion, 1918 Edition. By VICTOR W. PAGé, M.S.A.E.
This is the most complete, practical and up-to-date treatise on gasoline automobiles and their
component parts ever published. In the new revised and enlarged 1918 edition, all phases of
automobile construction, operation and maintenance are fully and completely described, and
in language anyone can understand. Every part of all types of automobiles, from light cycle-
cars to heavy motor trucks and tractors, are described in a thorough manner, not only
the automobile, but every item of it;, equipment, accessories, tools needed, supplies and spare
parts necessary for its upkeep, are fully discussed.
It is clearly
and concisely

written by an expert familidy with every branch of the automobile industry
and the originator of the practical system of self-education on technical subjects. It is a liberal edu-
cation in the automobile art, useful to all who motor for either business or pleasure.
Anyone reading the incomparable treatise is in touch with all improvements that have been
made in motor-car construction. All latest developments, such as high speed aluminum motorg
and multiple valve and sleeve-valve engines, are considered in detail. The latest ignition,
carburetor and lubrication practice is outlined. New forms of change speed gears, and final
power transmission systems, and all latest chassis improvements are shown and described.
This book is used in all leading automobile schools and is conceded to be the STANDARD
TREATISE. The chapter on tarting and Lighting Systems has been greatly enlarged, and
many automobile engineering features that have long puzzled laymen are explained so clearly
that the underlying principles can be understood by anyone. This book was first published
six years ago and so much new matter has been added that it is nearly twice its original size.
The only treatise covering various forms of war automobiles and recent developments in motor-
truck design as well as pleasure cars. This book is not too technical for the layman nor too elementary
for the more expert. It is an incomparable work of reference for home or school. 1,000 6x9 pages,
nearly 1,000 illustrations, 12 folding plates. Cloth bound. Price
