And there has hardly been another invention which has influenced the 20th century the same way the combustion engine has.
This book is an homage to both the combustion engine and the automobile. It presents more than 80 engine classics as well as the corresponding vehicles. However, it is not just about vehicle legends which have celebrated great victories in racing but also about those cars and their engines which have got special stories to tell.

They also specifically noted that the ability to search the music „for specific note patterns“ was valuable to musicologists. As of 2005, the primary users of the library fell into three main categories. These are university professors and their students using texts from the library as required reading without running up the students‘ bill for textbooks, people preparing sermons and Bible studies, and those reading for individual edification.
