MECHANICAL ENGINEERING HERITAGE NO.69

‘The Collection of Drawings for Japanese Machines’

The academic text ‘The Collection of Drawings for Japanese Machines’ issued by the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers was published with a view toward ‘disseminating correct knowledge of domestic products to general engineers and serving as reference drawings in terms of teaching mechanical engineering’. The book has undergone several updates since 1932 to become a precious educational material for students interested in mechanical engineering. On the other hand, for general engineers, the book was meaningfully used across the machinery industry, as it spurred awareness of commonly using domestic machines and promoted their utilization, thereby contributing greatly to the advancement and the development of industries and educational circles in Japan.
