Notes on Experimental Engineering. Appendices (1908,1909).
By Lieut.-Commander Urban T. Holmes, U. S. N. These notes have been compiled to include such engineering material, necessary in completing the Experimental Engineering course at the Naval Academy, as is not contained in other text books. The apparatus described is, for the most part, that installed in the new engineering laboratory. All of the matter contained in the book is of practical value to the officer desiring to improve his knowledge of the experimental work of the naval engineer.
The information about cements is that often wanted by the naval officer, but hard to obtain without consulting an extensive engineering library. The chapter on testing oils gives the latest information on the subject and tells how not to do it, which in that line of testing on board ship is often more important than how to do it. Some of the matter contained is entirely new. A graphical method of working out the horsepower from indicator cards, that can be used on board ship, is given. Professor Thomas' steam calorimeter and Professor Parr's coal calorimeter, which are fully described, have not previously appeared in any text book. A more complete description of Mahler's coal calorimeter is here given than is contained in other English text books. The chapters on the use of special instruments and the testing of materials present the matter in a simple way that is easy to understand.
An appendix has been added (1908), containing additional matter and bringing the book up to date.

Changes in the Navy manual of arms, the facings, and other minor features, not essential to practical uniformity in cooperation with the Army, have been avoided.
The Firing Regulations for Small-Arms conform in all essential particulars to the new Army Regulations.
The Physical Drill without Arms (setting-up exercises), has been greatly simplified and improved.

Navigation and Compass Deviations (Revised and Enlarged, 1908).
By Commander W. C. P. Muir, U. S. Navy, Head of Department of Navigation, U. S. Naval Academy. A practical treatise on navigation and nautical astronomy, including the theory of compass deviation, prepared for use as a text-book at the U. S. Naval Academy. Though written primarily for use of midshipmen, the various subjects have been so presented that any zealous student possessing but a slight knowledge of trigonometry may be able to master the methods given.
Much attention has been given to a description of the various navigational instruments, their uses and errors; to the principles involved in the construction of charts as well as to an account of the work usually performed on them; and the subject of pilotage has been considered at length. The chapters on compass deviation include not only the theory but the various practical methods of compensation, using the rectangular method. Enough of theoretical astronomy has been incorporated to enable any one without a previous knowledge of that science to pursue the study of the practical part of nautical astronomy.
The chapter on Time goes largely into detail and is illustrated by the solution of many examples, as are all other parts of the book.
In a consideration of "lines of position" considerable space is given not only to the theories and practice of Sumner, but to the later adaptation of those theories by A. C. Johnson, R. N.
The book includes a chapter on the "New Navigation" or the method of Marcq Saint-Hilaire, with a full explanation of the solutions by computation, by nomography, and by Littlehales' graphic method; also chapters on the "Day's Work," the "Tides" and the "Identification of Heavenly Bodies;" and is in every respect an up-to-date treatise on Modern Navigation. It has been designed to furnish forms for arrangement of work, and is a handy volume in respect to dimensions. It is printed on opaque, thin paper of excellent quality and bulks but 1¼ inches from cover to cover inclusive, although containing 765 pages.
Besides useful tables; extracts from the nautical almanac; and plates of hydrographic and topographic signs and symbols, of variation and of circles of position on a mercator chart, there are four appendices.
Appendix A is a description of submarine signals; appendix B describes the first compensation of a compass before leaving a navy yard and the procedure in special cases when compensating on one heading; appendix C, the use of azimuth tables in finding Z, M, t, and a great circle course; appendix D, Dr. Pesci's nomogram and its use to the navigator.
12mo, 765 + xvi pages, illustrated by diagrams and many text figures. Price $5.00, postpaid.
Naval Electricians' Text-Book (1908).
This is a revised and enlarged edition of the Naval Electricians' Text- and Hand-Book by Lieut.-Comdr. W. H. G. Bullard, U. S. Navy, head of the Department of Electrical Engineering at the U. S. Naval Academy. Many new chapters have been added, and most of the original chapters have been rewritten, making a text-book of over 900 pages and containing over 400 illustrations explanatory of the text, covering the entire subject of electricity as now applied to ships of war. The principles are illustrated by problems which follow the text to which they refer, and most of the figures are sketches of wiring diagrams, illustrating the elementary principles involved, followed by description of the electrical devices and apparatus used on ship-board.
