FORREST, JAMES (ED.)
MINUTES OF PROCEEDINGS of THE INSTITUTION OF CIVIL ENGINEERS; with other Selected and Abstracted Papers / Volumes 71 to 103
London, Published by the Institution 1883 to 1891, 1st edition, hb. Ill.: black-&-white illustrations. A broken run of 22 volumes covering the years 1883 to 1891. 8vo, Each volume uniformly bound in 3/4 leather over "pebbled" brown buckram with five raised bands and morocco spine labels.
¶ The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) is a long-established independent professional association for civil engineers. Based in London, about three-quarters of its 86,000 current members are located in the United Kingdom. The publishing division of the ICE has been in existence since 1836, and the Minutes of Proceedings were published continuously starting in 1841 until 1935. Each volume contains papers presented at meetings of the ICE, together with the accounts of meetings and reports of concern to the membership, and "abstracts of papers in foreign transactions and periodicals". Each volume is illustrated, often with highly-detailed folding diagrams, charts, or plates. Our offering contains the following volumes: 1883 - nos. 71 to 74; 1884 - nos. 75, 77, 78; 1885 - nos. 80 to 82; 1886 - nos. 83, 84, 86 and 87; 1887 - nos. 88 to 90; 1888 - 92 to 94; 1891 - no. 103. The spines are all a bit sunned and the leather was somewhat dry when we acquired this set but we have applied three treatments of leather dressing and the appearance has been improved. The extremities of the boards are rubbed, but it is not untoward. Generally, the bindings are tight and the contents are unmarked. Altogether, these volumes form a most impressive and substantial set containing important engineering and technical information published during a period of rapid growth and innovation in the field of civil engineering. Given the weight of this collection, it would be prudent to inquire as to costs, and options, to ship.
