The Lives of Boulton and Watt is an account of the most important partnership of the Industrial Revolution; the engineering firm of 'Boulton and Watt'. James Watt transformed steam engine technology in the eighteenth century by inventing the more powerful and efficient condensing engine. He collaborated with businessman Matthew Boulton to form a successful engineering firm in 1773, which went on to monopolise the production of steam engines in England for the rest of that century. Samuel Smiles (1812-1904) studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh before becoming a campaigner for Parliamentary reform and a journalist. He was secretary of the Leeds Parliamentary Reform Association and editor of the Leeds Times before becoming secretary of Leeds & Thirsk Railway and, later, of the South Eastern Railway. He wrote biographies about a number of engineers, including George Stephenson and Thomas Telford. [ Rosley Books for Antiquarian Literature, Theology and History ]. (Book ref. 0015898) £32.00
