This vintage book is fully titled Hawkins’ Self Help Mechanical Drawing for Home Study - An Educational Treatise. It was written by N. Hawkins, M.E. who also wrote Handbook of Calculations. It covers the vast realm of mechanical drawing with descriptive narrative and basic diagram illustrations (see the Contents page in the photos). It has a 1902 copyright by Theo. Audel & Co. of New York who was also the publisher.
It measures about 7” by 10 ½” by 7/8” thick and is in fair condition. The inside pages are generally clean with light wear. A few of the pages are creases or wrinkled. The inner binding is tight and the pages are secure, however, the outer spine is all but gone, apparently eaten by a varmint, and the cover is weak. Also, the back cover has some soiling. The binding condition aside, this is still a usable and informative old book.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
