Originally published during the early part of the twentieth century, the Cambridge Manuals of Science and Literature were designed to provide concise introductions to a broad range of topics. They were written by experts for the general reader and combined a comprehensive approach to knowledge with an emphasis on accessibility. Electricity in Locomotion by Adam Gowans Whyte was first published in 1911. The text contains an informative account of the role of electricity in the development of various forms of locomotion.
