Transaction Of The Newcomen Society 1953-1993

Ref: Run 227


Price: 600.00

New in the market
Volumes 29 to 66 inclusive, mainly annual, a few bi-annual. Medium quarto format, page count varies, mostly about 200 pages, some up to 300 pages. With photos and other illustrations. All volumes in the Society's hard case binding and all in immaculate condition. A superb long run.
Papers cover a wide variety of subjects in the history of technology from "traditional technology" such as pumping engines, windmills, early factory processes, steamships, quarrying, etc to the modern era - linear induction motors and pressed steel railway vehicles to take just two examples from volume 66. The material is not at all forbidding but is often elegantly written with occasional shafts of humour. Good element of railway subjects by noted authors.
