Description Edit | History

From publisher blurb:

Mr Lloyd presents his annotated compendium of ingenious Victorian devices. From the anti-garotting cravat, to Alexander Bell's invention of Wireless Telephony everything presented in this remarkable booklet was a genuine nineteenth century invention.

Not for this compendium wild claims based on nothing but a patent drawing that never saw light of day. From the Atmospheric Railway to Scheutz's Calculation Engine, the 52 inventions presented here were all developed and used by the inventive folk of the nineteenth century.

To those who say that the cover illustration must surely depict a work of science fiction, I say that they have never heard of Monsieur Mouchot's demonstration of a solar engine at the 1869 Paris Exhibition. Not only did he demonstrate that concentrated sunlight could power a steam engine, he used the resulting energy to run a freezer, turning the sun's rays into ice-cubes to the amazement of the visiting public.
