Excerpt from Tubular and Other Iron Girder Bridges: Particularly Describing the Britannia and Conway Tubular Bridges, and Illustrations of the Application of Malleable Iron to the Art of Bridge-Building

Engineering Works being usually of a public character, naturally excite a general interest throughout the community, the extent of which feeling is commonly commensurate with the novelty, the magnitude, and the utility of the perfum ance. Thus, a railway, a harbour, a lighthouse, a dock, or a bridge, regarded as subservient to public convenience, is watched with public anxiety, and its completion becomes an occasion of public gratulation. Such a work is therefore a peculiarly suitable subject for one of a series of Rudimentary Volumes, dedicated, in their several features of style, size, and price, to the use of a largely-extended circle of readers and students. And it must be admitted by all that the works which form the main subjects of the following pages have claims of nearly unprecedented amount upon our attention, being new, great, and useful in a pre-eminent degree.
