WORK No. 156 - Published March 12, 1892   4

Greetings all. Another year has come and gone. This is the last issue of Volume 3. How can you tell? Apart from the majestic cover art, there's a whopping fifteen articles this week! Sure, at least one of them is about a novel method of cooling butter, but the rest are pretty outstanding. Some of them are downright mysterious.

How mysterious? Well it's difficult to show in an engraving but Fig. 1 below shows two clock hands on a clear, glass disk, apparently moving without the aid of any perceptible gears or mechanism. I won't give away the secret here. You'll have to read the PDF yourself. That's how I feel about secrecy. -T

Disclaimer: Articles in Work describe materials and methods that would not be considered safe or advisable today. We are not responsible for the content of these magazines, and cannot take any responsibility for anyone attempting projects or procedures described therein.
The first issue of Work was published on March 23rd, 1889. The goal of this project is to release digital copies of the individual issues starting on the same date in 2012, effectively republishing the materials 123 years to the day from their original release.
The original printing was on thin, inexpensive paper. There are many cases of uneven inking and bleed-through from the page behind. Our copies of Work come from bound library volumes of these issues and are subject to unfavorable trimming, missing covers, etc. To minimize harm to these fragile volumes, we've undertaken the task of scanning the books ourselves. We do considerable post processing of the scans to make them clear but please bear with us if a margin is clipped too close, or a few words are unreadable. We would like to thank James Vasile and Karl Fogel for their help in supplying us with a book scanner and generally enabling this project to get off the ground.
You are welcome to download, print, and pretty much do what you want with the scan for your own personal purposes. Feel free to post a link or a copy on your blog or website. All we ask is a link back to the original project and this blog. We are not answering requests for commercial downloads or reprinting at this time.
