Excerpt from Heat Energy and Fuels: Pyrometry, Combustion, Analysis of Fuels and Manufacture of Charcoal, Coke and Fuel Gases

IF we consider the immense strides that technical science has made in the Second half Of the nineteenth century; if we Observe how prosperity is increasing, especially in the countries prominent in engineering; and how, as a natural sequence, the standing and influence of engi'neers are constantly growing in these countries, we are forced to ask by what means all this has come to pass - in other words, to what circumstances are we indebted for this remarkable progress?

A close study of the development Of technical science Shows its close connection with the natural development Of mankind.
