Published in 1975 as one of a number of books in the IME Mechanical Engineers Library series, here we have Setright lightheartedly writing about unusual engines, with Michael Worthington-Williams providing and captioning more than 70 illustrations of such prime-movers. Setright confines himself to describing the classic examples. The chapters divide these engines into those with unusual respiration in charging and scavenging, those simply of unusual construction, engines with unusual valve apparatus (wherein he is thinking in terms mainly of rotary and sleeve-valve power units), engines of unusual format, and engines with unusual translation of power, i.e., axial and swash-plate engines, etc.What better subject for the industrious Leonard to tackle? This is a book with a note of authority about it, of interest to aeronautical students and engineers, as well as to motoring folk who revel in the unconventional (Motorsport Magazine) The dust jacket is enclosed in a protective, clear plastic wrapper which has preserved it from all except the slightest bumping on the edges. The only signs of the book's age are slight sunning on the spine and a few foxing speckles on the upper text block edge, also a few on the rear end papers. There is a name on the front free end paper, neatly written in black ink, otherwise the interior is unmarked. With clear text on clean pages, clear b/w photographs, illustrations and fascinating diagrams, this book would make a delightful gift for the right recipient.
