Chapter on "Error in Physics," by W. F. G. Swann. Books for
Clara Bloomfield. Keely and His Discoveries. (Reprint ed with
foreword by Leslie Shepard, University Books, 1972?. Original edition,
1893(?).) Mrs. Moore was one of Keely's most faithful supporters. Keely's
explanations of his theories were incomprehensible even to those sympathetic
to his work, and this book provides many examples of this.
Arthur W. J. G. Perpetual Motion. St Martins, 1978. Ord-Hume is an
engineer, and has written extensively on antique clocks and other mechanisms.
But his cavalier "refutations" of many of the perpetual motion
machines are trivial and misleading. Some parts, particularly chapter 6, are
difficult to follow. But, the book has the virtue of still being in print,
in paperback, and as a historical survey of the subject it is well worth
owning. However, the drawings in the Barnes and Noble reprint edition are
not nearly so clear.

drawings are very clearly reproduced. The explanations often miss the mark.
American, 1884, has references to J. W. Keely, generally derogatory and even
sarcastic. March 19, p. 196. April 5, p. 213. Oct 11, p. 230.
