Selections from Rare Books: The Gyroscope

The Gyroscope by V.E. Johnson

The Gyroscope by V.E. Johnson

The Woodson’s Rare Books collection features the Benjamin Monroe Anderson Collection on the History of Aeronautics. In this fascinating collection of books and manuals, one may find The Gyroscope by V.E. Johnson, No. 22 of the S. and C. Series of Elementary Manuals for Mechanics and Students. It’s a neat little gem, describing the mechanics of gyroscopes, their applications, and numerous simple and complex experiments. It even provides instructions for building an electric gyroscope and a model monorail. Could make for some fun weekend projects.
