Excerpt from Illustrations of the Theory and Practice of Ventilation: With Remarks on Warming, Exclusive Lighting, and the Communication of Sound
The Author of the following pages having been called upon frequently, for many years past, to give explanations on numerous points that have guided him in the varied works in which he has been engaged, has been led to entertain the opinion, that, if these were embodied in a connected series of Illustrations on the Principles and Practice of Ventilation, they would present the bearings of this subject in a form that would render them generally accessible to non-professional readers. He has also to explain, that in none of the Works hitherto executed under his directions, has he ever had the opportunity, either in Buildings or in Ships, of introducing his plans, with all the advantages of which he considers them susceptible, were they incorporated in the original design, instead of being merely appended to designs or works already executed.
