Technical Drawing for Soviet Engineers

Cherchenie dlia zaochnogo i statsionarnogo obucheniia s mashinostroitel'nym uklonom po programmam vtuzov [Technical drawing for extension and local cources, with an inclination towards engineering, based on the programs at technical colleges], vols. 1–7 (of 10 published).

Moscow-Leningrad: Snabtekhizdat, 1932. Quartos (30 × 21.3 cm). Original staple-stitched pictorial wrappers (the design is repeated in different colors); 182 pp. (consecutive pagination). Light soil and foxing to wrappers; three issues with detached wrappers and chipping to edges; internally very good.

Scarce series of instructional brochures, intended as an introductory course of technical drawing for both self-study and guided classes. Under the slogan "technology for the masses", it not only seeks to equip students of technical colleges with the basic knowledge for executing technical drawings, but is also intended to teach any technical worker how to read complex renderings. The course covers such topics as the basic elements of drawings, such as different formats, lines, and fonts and the tools needed to produce them; the construction of curved forms; methods for orthogonal drawings, including the difference between German and American approaches to projections; axonometry and projective geometry, and intersecting spheres. Each issue is illustrated with numerous drawings by the author, and contains explanations followed by assignments.

The present group lacks the last three issues, which constituted a special section intended for machine builders and industrial engineers.
