Geometric Design of Linkages, by J. Michael McCarthy, Springer-Verlag, New York, XXXX.
This book presents the mathematical theory of design for articulated systems called linkages. Robot manipulators, walking machines, and mechanical hands are examples of these systems, all of which rely on simple mechanical constraints to provide a complex workspace for an end-effector.
