Stromeyer's book - first published in 1893 - is still a valuable source for people interested in the manufacture and management of marine boilers. The author shows how boilers must be designed for their work on ships and how any defects which may show themselves are re-moved. His descriptions are complemented by many drawings and practical examples.
