Amusingly, the publisher's note states that:-
''This treatise on Electric Bells is issued in the confident belief that it's not only thoroughly practical and reliable, but is so simply worded that even inexperienced readers can understand it."

I hope that the publisher is correct!

A nice old pocket reference book for the book collector and Engineer.
