PREFACE TO THE FIRST EDITION
In developing this work on "Household Refrigeration,"
the first of the kind published, the author has endeavored to
present a subject in its broadest sense.
Attention has been given to the production of refrigera-
tion for any household or domestic purpose by both ice and
mechanically cooled refrigerators. The work consists of a
treatise on the principles, types, construction and operation
of both ice and mechanically cooled refrigerators, including
therein certain considerations on the use of ice and refrigera-
tion in the home.

The author has drawn extensively on his experience as
a refrigeration engineer for material for this work. However,

to gratefully acknowledge the assistance which has been ex-
tended to him by various associations, publishers, manufac-
,turers, and others, during the preparation of the subject matter
of this book.
