Publication: Published by The Ferro Machine & Foundry Co, 1909, Cleveland
First edition. 12" x 9" string-tied, embossed, stiff wrappers, green front and rear endpapers, 71 pp., introductory, illustrated. This Treatise is a simple, non-technical book covering the design, construction, installation and operation of marine motors.The company recognizes that few people have had an opportunity to operate a motor before they own one. This booklet serves to educate the layman in order that he can get the most pleasure and service from his power boat. The better "working knowledge" of motor construction and operation, the better prepared he will be to understand and solve problems that may arise. This type work began in 1907, followed by a larger version in 1908. This still larger edition for 1909 is a greater effort to make owners understand the construction and operation of their motors. Oversized wrappers a little rubbed on the fore-edges, light wear to the spine ends, interior clean, for an overall near fine copy of a very informative booklet.
