Report on Proposed Pumping Plant and Appurtenances of the Ganges-Kobdak Irrigation Project Kushtia unit, East Pakistan
Providence, Rhode Island: Jenks & Ballou 1957. First Edition. A large report, bulking nearly an inch thick, of a report done by Jenks and Ballou (a consulting engineering firm) for the International Cooperation Administration in Washington DC in 1957. The engineers involved went around the world reviewing pumping and irrigation plants in Japan, Hong Kong, and other places. The report is summarized in the first 20 pages, followed by some 130 pages of details. There are original photographs pasted into the report with legends describing what the reader is looking at. A few original photographs have perished over the years. Very Good. Binder. 
Stamped "Official Use Only" throughout, this is one of perhaps a handful of copies distributed, and is an interesting view into the engineering best practices of the time, and the irrigation challenges faced in Pakistan for this project. The work was done under contract PIO/T 91 - 12 - 026 - 3 - 70868, and the report is dated December 1957.
