American machinists handbook and dictionary of shop terms
American Machinists' Handbook and Dictionary of Shop Terms : Fred Herbert Colvin :The latter title, still in print and regularly revised, is the one that machinists today are usually referring to when they speak imprecisely of "the machinist's handbook" or "the machinists' handbook". The somewhat generic sound of the title American Machinists' Handbook , and the ambiguity of its apostrophe usage, no doubt contributed to the confounding of the two books' titles and identities. It capitalized on readers' familiarity with American Machinist , McGraw-Hill's popular trade journal. But the usage could have benefited from some branding discipline, because the confusion over whether the title was properly "American Machinist's Handbook" or "American Machinists' Handbook" or " American Machinist 's Handbook" was and is considerable. Although McGraw-Hill's American Machinists' Handbook appeared first , it is doubtful that Industrial Press's Machinery's Handbook was a mere me-too conceived afterwards in response.
