There are many good histories of the various branches of the applied sciences, mechanics, engineering, aerodynamics, and the like. But, until the original publication of this work in 1957, there had been no general history of hydraulics, the science concerned with the flow of fluids. With the present reprinting, the only history of this vital area is now available to teachers, students, and workers in the field in an inexpensive edition.
