LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
World Distributors, London, 1966. hardcover, 8½" x 11", with illustrated board covers. Previous owner's name to ffep. Book in VERY GOOD condition. Illustrated endpapers and title pages, 75 b&w photographs, and similar number of line drawings (mostly functional diagrams). Meet the famous British inventors and their major contributions to our society - all placed in context. They range in nature, significance and time from Newton's telescope and Harrison's chronometer to Tull's seed-drill and Bell's reaper; from heavy engineering to delicate precision tools; from textile machinery to dynamos; from steel to cement, telegraphy to turbines and steam locomotives to gliders. The men who conceived them were as dissimilar as their ideas.
