Their design, construction and working by steam, oil and electricity. Second edition revised hardback 1902.
An early work on the considerable number of cars and car engines and their various systems of design already in existence. Worby Beaumont was a joint editor of The Engineer and a leading and inventive experimental engineer and judge at exhibitions of engines. He was an effective advocate for the removal or restrictions on motor cars. So we have him to thank for our mobility and busy roads. He was a founding member of the Institute of Automobile Engineers and a consulting engineer to Rolls Royce.
