A History Of Mechanical Inventions

In this completely revised and enlarged edition of a classic work in the history of technology, a noted scholar explores the importance of technological innovation in the cultural and economic history of the West. Contains thought-provoking accounts of the technology of textile manufacture from primitive times, of water wheels and windmills, water clocks, and mechanical clocks, and the work of Leonardo da Vinci. Other topics include the production and application of power (1500–1830), machine tools and quantity production, the production and distribution of power since 1832, and much more. For anyone interested in the history of science and invention, as well as the relationship of technology to economic and social history. (048625593X)
