The Jet Engine: Rolls-Royce

The Jet Engine
This is a 1973 reprint (withe revisions) of the third edition from 1969.
One of the best reference books on the function and systems of modern jet engines.

From the introduction:
"This book has been written to provide a simple and self-contained description of the working and underlying principles of the aero gas turbine engine.
The use of complex formulae and the language of the specialist have been avoided to allow for a clear and concise presentation of the essential facts. Only such description and formulae, therefore, as are necessary to the understanding of the function and the theory of the engine are included."
