A scrapbook, [ca. 1887-1919], containing circulars about injectors and their usages and some original designs for the Verbesserter, Gifford, and Friedmann Steam injectors are included. Among the representative draftsmen whose works appear in the collection are Theordore Bergner, Arthur C.H. Magnin, William J. Sellers, John H. Seitz, Jr., Frank R. Lewis, Carl Barth, and Eugene Klotz.
