    Reminds me of some of the early Seamanship manuals. I've had opportunity to view a couple of them and compare against what we do today. Somethings never change and others ..... well. There's a reason I guess. LOL ON the other hand, sometimes books like that give some really great insight to the thinking of some of the "Old Guys" too.

    Lowell M. Limpus wrote a number of books about the FDNY and its history and operations.

    If you can ever find History of the New York fire department, by Lowell M. Limpus you will find many a great story within its binding. There is also a forward from Chief John J. McElligott.

    You have a good read on your hands. I think I have a copy of that around here as well.

    PS-Many of the evolutions in there are unchanged and still practiced today.
