He has also added some illustrative diagrams, and has supplied a new and fuller Index. He has preserved (in the Appendices) the useful material given in former editions on "Rolling New-made Roads," by Sir John Burgoyne; on the "Economy of Bead Maintenance and Horse-Draft through Steam Road-Rolling," by Mr. F. A. Paget (to which he has added a brief Supplementary Sketch); and on the "Condition of Wood and Asphalte Pavements in the City of London," by Colonel Haywood. He has also given the By-laws now in force regarding the Construction of New Streets in the Metropolis. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
