A Guide to Technical Writing (1908)

I never thought that technical writing could be that old. See A Guide to Technical Writing by T.A. Rickard. This book was published in 1908, that is more than 100 years ago!

UPD: And here comes another artefact from the "good old times", a bibliography on "English for engineers" for the use of engineering students, practicing engineers, and teachers in schools of engineering, to which are appended brief selected lists of technical books for graduates in civil, electrical, mechanical, and chemical engineering. Published in 1916.
