"Mechanical Drawing" aims to provide a fundamental course on all theory, principles, and methods needed to create a practical working drawing. It outlines a systematic method for mechanical drawing and offers useful information on convention and design, making it ideal for students and novices. Contents include: "Instruments and Their Uses", "Drafting Room Conventions", "Freehand Lettering and Geometric Drawing", "Orthographic Projection", "Representation of Points and Lines", "Representation of Planes", "Orthographic Projection Applied", "Isometrical Projection", "Working Drawings", "Lettering, continued", "Geometrical Drawing, continued", et cetera.
