Sheffield Meccano Guild

 

Steam Power for Industry

 

by John Wilson

 

Originally serialised in the Sheffield Meccano Guild Journal, in combined form this is a publication which deserves much wider circulation.

 

In a scholarly yet very readable and entertaining way, John Wilson explains the history and development of the stationary steam engine from its invention in the early 1700's to around 1800, through the efforts and genius of the fathers of the Steam Age - Newcomen, Smeaton, Watt, Boulton, Wilkinson, Murdoch, Trevithick and Murray - and the realisation of the designs, mechanisms and prototypes in Meccano, by himself and other well-known Meccanomen.

 

36 pages including text, diagrams, colour photographs and historial material.
