Encyclopedia of the History of Technology

eBook (PDF), 1081 Pages
Price: $185.39
Dr Johnson wrote, ‘A man may turn over half a library to make one book’. In the present case around a score of writers have turned over about as many libraries to make this Encyclopaedia. The Book of Proverbs states, ‘God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions’. Whatever one may think about Charles Darwin’s ‘Descent of Man’, it is a fact that man walked upright, giving him a pair of hands which he could use for manipulation, rather than ambulation, and his cranial capability enabled him to evolve many inventions. This book tells the story of these inventions from stone axe to spacecraft, from cave dwelling to computer. The objective has been to simplify the study of the History of Technology by putting into the hands of the reader, be he or she student or layman, a single volume telling the whole story in twenty-two chapters, each written by an acknowledged expert.
