The immediate object of this publication was to show the beneficial effects of machinery in aid of the manufacturing arts on the condition of society, and of the working-men themselves. In accomplishing this object, it describes the improvements which have been made, in many of the important branches of manufacture, by means of ingenious inventions for performing the different processes, in a manner more satisfactory and interesting, than will probably be found in

any other publication. It thus embodies a large amount of mi curious information, and by exhibiting the effects of the im.

provements in the mechanic and other arts, it shows, in a most striking manner, how much the condition of society has been improved by the ingenious application of the principles of science to the perfection of those arts. It shows how much more effective human labor has become in promoting human, happiness, in consequence of the introduction of mechanical inventions into almost every branch of industry.
