The Engineer and Missing Volumes

We have completed the copying of the 200 plus volumes of ‘The Engineer’ dating from 1856 to 1960. That is not quite the end though as have to add indexes to the volumes so that the content links across to other material in Grace’s Guide and that is labour intensive.

The original volumes have been sourced from a private collection and with the assistance of Bristol Reference Library. We have around fifteen volumes missing from the sequence either completely or because the volumes we have are incomplete. Thanks to the current publisher of ‘The Engineer’ we have now found ten of those and these will be photographed and added to the site over the next few weeks. Then all we need to do is just need those last five volumes to have the complete run.
