The bulk of de Carle's original text, most of which is concerned with matter of basic construction, selection, care of and accessories for the lathe and its uses, has been retained. Likewise, the section 'Lathes of the World' for it represents an unparalleled source of detailed information on lathes and accessories, the manufacture of which ceased many years ago. The current scene is dealt with at length in the final section, 'Lathes Today', and is the result of extensive world-wide research prepared with the full co-operation of the manufacturer or the manufacturer's agent. Another unique feature is the directory of lathe, tool and material stockists which has been completely revised for this new edition. To quote one reviewer of a previous edition, 'The standard work on the subject.'
