About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1931, this book formed part of The Craftsman Series, which aimed to give secondary school age children an insight into 'the development of constructive activities in the sphere of material things'. James Nasmyth (1808–90) was a Scottish engineer who made an integral contribution to the industrial revolution through the invention of the steam hammer. The text is comprised of extracts from the complete version of The Autobiography of James Nasmyth (1883). These extracts offer an engaging account of Nasmyth's life and work, beginning with his early experiences and moving through his major achievements as an engineer. An editorial preface, glossary and illustrative figures are also included. This is a highly readable book that will be of value to anyone with an interest in Nasmyth, mechanical engineering and books for schools.
