Steam Design Books

 

We will be bringing you all kinds of old and interesting books. They are all out of their original copyright, so we are tidying them up and annotating them. They will be updated with their new copyright marks and will be available on CD or for download. Payment by PayPal only

Steam engines, steam engine design, engineering text-books (both theoretical and practical) and other practical handbooks will be coming soon. Check back frequently. If you register with us we will be emailing updates when available.

These are free to dowload, but if you find them (or the site as a whole) to be helpful you may want to help with the hosting costs. Every donation, even 0.50 or 1 helps us keep the site up and active.

If you have any manuals or working instructions that you would like to share, please email or call me (John Murphy) so we can get them scanned and on the site.
