51st Annual Report, Incorporated Swansea Exchange (Royal Metal Exchange) 1937-38, Anon.
1 51st Annual Report, Incorporated Swansea Exchange (Royal Metal Exchange) 1937-38 Anon.
Swansea Exchange. 1938 First Edition. Hardcover Good No Jacket 
A good 117 page hardback book, being the Fifty-First Annual Report, Statement of Accounts, List of Members etc, of the Incorporated Swansea Exchange (Royal Metal Exchange) Swansea, for the year 1937-38. Clean and tight inside, covers a little bowed, sunned and faded. Stapled binding under a cloth backstrip - staples are rusty. Ticks against various names of subscribing companies, faded company inkstamp on front cover, otherwise unmarked. Apart from the matters of the exchange, there are something like 48 pages of advertisements which emphasis how much our local economy was dependent upon metalworking industries of one kind and another. Transport ads too - did you know that in those days you could sail from Swansea to Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, the Friendly and Solomon Islands? - now, that's what I call a holiday cruise! Lots of facts and figures - one page lists tinplate exports from 1865 to 1938, making very interesting reading. Many names of individuals, a company directory etc - a very useful source for the local historian.

11 Agitator Selection & Design. EEUA Handbook #9. Anon.
Constable & Co. 1963 Hardcover Very Good Very Good 
A very good 88 page hardback book. Previous owner's name and inkstamp on front endpaper; Sellotape offset on front & rear endpapers from makeshift cover, now removed. Book and DJ both unworn, spine of DJ is a little darkened. 5 sections, 5 appendices, 16 figures, 35 tables. Sections are headed: Scope & Definitions; Recommendations on Plant; Guide to the Choice of Impeller Types; Choice of Drive; Power Assessment; and Mechanical Design of Agitators. This Handbook has been prepared to give some guidance to those responsible for the selection or design of agitation or mixing equipment for various duties. At present many types of mixers are used industrially, and experience of member firms of the Engineering Equipment Users' Association suggests that such variety is unnecessary. The majority of agitation problems can be tackled by methods or recommendations given in this book, the proper use of which will help to solve or clarify many difficulties that beset the designer and user of agitator equipment.

American Industrial Problems., W R Lawson.
12 American Industrial Problems. W R Lawson.
William Blackwood and Sons. 1903 First Edition. Hardcover Good No Jacket 
A 394 page (plus 32 page catalogue) hardback book. Number stamped in Gold on spine, label been removed from front cover and another from inside same, so clearly ex-library of some kind, though probably not a public library. Light shelfwear, page edges dusty, good sound hinges. Occasional marginal pencilmark, easily erased if so desired, otherwise unmarked. Thirty chapters, a few tables, no index. ** An oddly mistitled book, the problem was not American, rather European - this book discusses the rapidly growing industrial strength of the United States, and the challenge it presented to the established European economic superiority. Written in a quite interesting way and is a very readable work. Change the title to "Chinese Industrial Problems" and we almost have today's scenario!
