Re: Historic Texts on Structure

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
My favorite is my First Edition Third Thousand "The Design of Steel Mill
Buildings and The Calculation of Stresses in Framed Structures" by Milo S.
Ketchum, C. E. 1905.  I love the old drawings and always enjoy seeing the
costs of various construction materials.  I have several other Milo S.
Ketchum books from the 1910's and 20's that I also treasure.
