Matthew Boulton by H. W Dickinson( Book )

6 editions published between 1936 and 2010 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 1939 work gives deserved recognition to the achievements of the engineer and businessman Matthew Boulton. Boulton's importance has generally been overshadowed by that of his partner James Watt, but he was a significant figure in his own right, particularly in relation to the Soho Foundry and his production of coins and medals. He belonged to a network of highly significant men of the period, including Josiah Wedgwood, Erasmus Darwin and Benjamin Franklin, and was a founding member of the Lunar Society of Birmingham. An engineer by profession, H. W. Dickinson researched widely, and published highly readable works on the history of the steam engine, Watt, and Trevithick, also reissued in this series. He succeeds in producing a work which appeals to the scientist, the historian and the general reader, without feeling obliged to over-simplify the technical details
James Watt by L. T. C Rolt( Book )

3 editions published between 1962 and 1964 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The steam engine, more than any other invention, made possible the Industrial Revolution. And James Watt, more than any other inventor, was responsible for the steam engine. The transformation of England from an agricultural country with a largely rural population into the world's leading industrial and urban nation came about through the application of steam power to manufacturing processes. So there can be no arguing as to whether - for better or worse - James Watt was a Maker of Britain
