The author endeavored to present this material for the ordinary mechanic or worker in cement and concrete, not for the use of engineers. A large amount of information is presented in tabular form, so that the mechanic can find information at a glance. Chapters on cements, concrete, mortar, sidewalk construction, lathing, plastering, using cement moulds, and more. A chapter on laying out work has also been incorporated.
