A collection of articles that are here melded into a book, originally published as articles in the periodical Marine Engineering. The preface tells the tale nicely:

"Many practical men will read a story but steer clear of a serious article which may, perhaps, cover the same subject. It was to reach just such men that the following story was written. The purpose has been to give as much practical and useful information as possible regarding the handling and care of boilers and marine engines, and yet have story enough to hold the interest of the reader.

So many letters of inquiry have been received, asking for further information on many points, that it is evident the story has been carefully read, and it is because of this apparent interest that 'The Professor on Shipboard' is now published in book form" (preface)
